Exploring the Thermoelectric Properties of Tin Selenide Nanostructures

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Single crystal tin selenide is a semiconductor and an ideal thermoelectric material; it can directly convert waste heat to electrical energy or be used for cooling. When a group of researchers from Case Western Reserve University saw the graphenelike layered crystal structure of SnSe, they had one of those magical “aha!” moments. The group reports in the Journal of Applied Physics that they immediately recognized this material’s potential to be fabricated in nanostructure forms.

Design Approach Developed for Important New Catalysts for Energy Conversion and Storage

Northwestern University

Northwestern University researchers have discovered a new approach for creating important new catalysts to aid in clean energy conversion and storage. The method also has the potential to impact the discovery of new optical and data storage materials and catalysts for higher efficiency processing of petroleum products at lower cost. The researchers created a catalyst that is seven times more active than state-of-the-art commercial platinum by combining theory, a new tool for synthesizing nanoparticles and more than one metallic element.

Measuring Electrical Conductance Across A Single Molecule

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

When noble metals are treated with an aliphatic thiol, a uniform monolayer self-assembles on the surface; this phenomenon is interesting because the conducting molecules produce unique quantum properties that could be useful in electronics. Attempts to measure the current across this thin skim have yielded varied results, but researchers in France developed a stable mechanical setup to measure conductance across individual molecules with greater success. The results are in this week’s Journal of Applied Physics.

Nanostructures Created by UCLA Scientists Could Make Gene Therapies Safer, Faster and More Affordable

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

UCLA scientists have developed a new method that utilizes microscopic splinter-like structures called “nanospears” for the targeted delivery of biomolecules such as genes straight to patient cells. These magnetically guided nanostructures could enable gene therapies that are safer, faster and more cost-effective.
