Reshaping the solar spectrum to turn light into electricity
Solar energy could be made cheaper if solar cells could be coaxed to generate more power. A huge gain in this direction has been made by a team of chemists that has found an ingenious way to make solar energy conversion more efficient. The researchers combined inorganic semiconductor nanocrystals with organic molecules to 'upconvert' photons in the visible and near-infrared regions of the solar spectrum.

Twin discoveries, 'eerie' effect may lead to manufacturing advances
The discovery of a previously unknown type of metal deformation -- sinuous flow -- and a method to suppress it could lead to more efficient machining and other manufacturing advances by reducing the force and energy required to process metals.

Researchers predict material with record-setting melting point
Using powerful computer simulations, researchers have identified a material with a higher melting point than any known substance. The computations show that a material made with hafnium, nitrogen, and carbon would have a melting point of more than 4,400 kelvins (7,460 degrees Fahrenheit). That's about two-thirds the temperature at the surface of the sun, and 200 kelvins higher than the highest melting point ever recorded experimentally.

A huge gain in this direction has been made by a team of chemists at the University of California, Riverside that has found an ingenious way to make solar energy conversion more efficient.

ASU will lead new research network looking at weather extremes and city infrastructure
(Arizona State University) Extreme weather events can cripple crucial infrastructure that enables transit, electricity, water and other services in urban areas. With weather extremes becoming more common -- from devastating hurricanes and flooding to record drought and heat waves -- it will be increasingly important to develop infrastructure in different, more sustainable ways. That is the idea behind a new Urban Resilience to Extreme Weather-Related Events Sustainability Research Network, recently funded by the National Science Foundation.

UCSB becomes west coast hub for national photonics manufacturing institute
(University of California - Santa Barbara) In a bid to boost photonics manufacturing and bring more skilled, high-tech jobs to the country, as well as push the boundaries of energy efficiency and performance in computing and telecommunications, the Obama administration announced today that it has selected the American Institute for Manufacturing of Photonics (AIM Photonics) to lead research and manufacturing of integrated photonic technology and create jobs in this important area.
