Catalyzing CO2

Catalyzing CO2

November 8, 2018

Imagine a day when - rather than being spewed into the atmosphere - the gases coming from power plants are instead captured and fed into catalytic reactors that chemically transform greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into industrial fuels or chemicals that emit only oxygen. It's a future that Rowland Fellow Haotian Wang says may be closer than many realize.

Mathis Lab publishes a new AI tool to track animals

September 17, 2018
Quantifying behavior is crucial for many applications in neuroscience. Videography provides easy methods for the observation and recording of animal behavior in diverse settings, yet extracting particular aspects of a behavior for further analysis can be highly time consuming. In motor control studies, humans or other animals are often marked with reflective markers to assist with computer-based tracking, but markers are...

Congreve Lab Develops New Efficient Blue LEDs

Congreve Lab Develops New Efficient Blue LEDs

September 11, 2018

Perovskite materials have the potential to be great LEDs, as very efficient red and green devices have been developed. Yet in order to be used in applications such as TVs and phones, blue LEDs are also required, and these have lagged far behind. Researchers in the Congreve Lab have figured out a surprising way to fix these materials: by adding a dopant, their brightness and efficiency counter-intuitively increase, leading to the highest efficiency blue...

Rowland Fellows at the Museum of Science

Rowland Fellows at the Museum of Science

July 19, 2018
Members of the Rowland Institute at Harvard joined with the Museum of Science in Boston, MA to introduce the nano-world and their research to visitors to the museum. Over the day, the Rowland group received training in outreach and interaction with the public, with a focus on describing their research in a way that can be understood and appreciated by the general public. They were then set loose in the museum to lead demos featuring nano-scale technologies, including thin films, photonic structures, and hydrophobicity...
