Atom-thick CCD could capture images
(Rice University) A synthetic two-dimensional material known as CIS could be the basis for ultimately thin imaging devices and optical sensors.

UT Dallas professor elected to National Academy
(University of Texas at Dallas) Dr. James Coleman, a leader in the development and application of semiconductor lasers and photonic devices and head of the Department of Electrical Engineering at UT Dallas, has been elected a 2014 Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors.

National Academy of Inventors publishes annual meeting proceedings
(University of South Florida (USF Innovation)) The current special issue of Technology and Innovation is devoted to presentations from the Third Annual Conference of the National Academy of Inventors, which was held March 6-7, 2014, at the headquarters of the United States Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Va., and includes select articles from the conference, as well as a general section related to pharmacy and nanotechnology, and an additional manuscript discussing innovation in chemistry.

Quantum physics just got less complicated
(Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore) Researchers show that wave-particle duality and quantum uncertainty are the same thing, reducing two mysteries to one

Research aims to improve rechargeable batteries by focusing on graphene oxide paper
(Kansas State University) A Kansas State University engineering team has discovered some of graphene oxide's important properties that can improve sodium- and lithium-ion flexible batteries.

Oregon researchers glimpse pathway of sunlight to electricity
(University of Oregon) Four pulses of laser light on nanoparticle photocells in a University of Oregon spectroscopy experiment has opened a window on how captured sunlight can be converted into electricity.

Rice study fuels hope for natural gas cars
(Rice University) Rice University researchers calculate the best candidates among possible metal organic frameworks to store natural gas for cars.

Creation of 'Rocker' protein opens way for new smart molecules in medicine, other fields
(Dartmouth College) Human cells are protected by a largely impenetrable molecular membrane, but researchers have built the first artificial transporter protein that carries individual atoms across membranes, opening the possibility of engineering a new class of smart molecules with applications in fields as wide ranging as nanotechnology and medicine.

Switching to spintronics
(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Berkeley Lab researchers used an electric field to reverse the magnetization direction in a multiferroic spintronic device at room temperature, a demonstration that points a new way towards spintronics and smaller, faster and cheaper ways of storing and processing data.

ORNL microscopy pencils patterns in polymers at the nanoscale
(DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) Scientists have used advanced microscopy to carve out nanoscale designs on the surface of a new class of ionic polymer materials for the first time.
