Research into how to Produce and Store Hydrogen. Is there a sustainable alternative fuel that can replace gasoline and diesel liquids to power the billions of cars and trucks on the road? Synthetic fuels made from the gasification of biomass or recombination of carbon and hydrogen into hydrocarbons, while certainly possible are very expensive to […]

A New Process to Remove Oil from Tar Sands. The oil sands or tar sands in Alberta Canada, hold the promise of oil for generations to come. As the global price for oil plummets though difficult and expensive processes to remove oil from the sand lose their competitiveness. There is also the issue of carbon […]

The Nature of Laser Light. When  most of us think about the nature of light we don’t think of it in terms of being able to impact objects other than illuminate them. In fact photons do have weight and can influence things. Scientists at EPFL show how a light-induced force can amplify the sensitivity and resolution […]

New Research from Engineers at the University of California, San Diego. Electric fields are caused by electric charges or varying magnetic fields. It is this phenomenon that allows us design such things as motors and generators. Control of these electric fields regardless of their power allows engineers to continue to design new devices and processes […]
