Rutgers-Led Research Could Revolutionize Nuclear Waste Reprocessing and Save Money

MolecularTraps2Fig.jpg

Seeking a better way to capture radioactive iodides in spent nuclear reactor fuel, Rutgers–New Brunswick scientists have developed an extremely efficient “molecular trap” that can be recycled and reused. The trap is like a tiny, porous super-sponge. The internal surface area of just one gram of this material could stretch out to cover five 94-by-50-foot basketball courts, or 23,500 square feet. And, once caught inside, radioactive iodides will remain trapped for eons.

Good Vibrations: Smart Access to Homes and Cars Using Fingers

VibWrite.jpg

“Good, good, good, good vibrations” goes the catchy Beach Boys song, a big hit in 1966 and beyond. Now Rutgers engineers have created VibWrite, a smart access system that senses finger vibrations to verify users. The low-cost security system could eventually be used to gain access to homes, apartment buildings, cars, appliances – anything with a solid surface.

Antibiotics From a ‘Molecular Pencil Sharpener’

Pencil_sketch-page-001HighRes.jpg

Rutgers University–New Brunswick and other institutions have discovered a “molecular pencil sharpener” that chews away its outer coating to release a powerful antibiotic. Their discovery opens the door to finding new antibacterial agents and drugs to fight toxins.

Taming ‘Wild’ Electrons in Graphene

GraphenePicture2.jpg

Graphene – a one-atom-thick layer of the stuff in pencils – is a better conductor than copper and is very promising for electronic devices, but with one catch: Electrons that move through it can’t be stopped. Until now, that is. Scientists at Rutgers University-New Brunswick have learned how to tame the unruly electrons in graphene, paving the way for the ultra-fast transport of electrons with low loss of energy in novel systems. Their study was published online in Nature Nanotechnology.
