Goldilocks and the optimal mating distance: Neither too small nor too large but just right

University of Michigan

Evolutionary theory predicts that the fitness of an individual is maximized when the genetic differences between its parents are neither too small nor too large but some ideal amount known as the optimal mating distance.

Laser Technology May Be a Key to Rehabilitating Greening-Diseased Citrus Trees

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

With the updated technology, a laser shoots infra-red energy pulses at citrus tree leaves. That energy cracks the cuticles on the leaves and increases the penetration of agrochemicals – including bactericides -- into the leaves by more than 4,000 percent.

Study: Want to Make Hydrogen Fuel Cells More Affordable? Try Manganese

University at Buffalo

Manganese could advance one of the most promising sources of renewable energy: hydrogen fuel cells. In a study published today (Oct. 29, 2018) in Nature Catalysis, a University at Buffalo-led research team reports on catalysts made from the widely available and inexpensive metal. The advancement could eventually help solve hydrogen fuel cells’ most frustrating problem: namely, they’re not affordable because most catalysts are made with platinum, which is both rare and expensive.

A Solar Cell That Does Double Duty for Renewable Energy

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis have developed an artificial photosynthesis device called a “hybrid photoelectrochemical and voltaic cell” that turns sunlight and water into two types of energy – hydrogen fuel and electricity.

Clean Energy to Power a Brighter Future

Oregon State University, College of Engineering

Led by Oregon State University College of Engineering professor emeritus Jose Reyes, NuScale Power intends to become the first company to introduce Small Modular Reactor (SMR) technology to the world. NuScale's unconventional SMR design is unlike anything status quo. SMRs are economic, factory built, shippable, scalable, and they are capable of providing power to areas with limited infrastructure or access to water. Most importantly, they provide something we must have — a reactor that cannot melt down.
