Aluminum-Rich Bulk Alloys: an Energy Storage Material for Splitting Water to Make Hydrogen Gas on Demand
The two major barriers to realizing a viable large-scale hydrogen economy are hydrogen storage and economically viable “green” hydrogen production. The current two preferred methods of hydrogen...
Fun in the Sand: Some Experiments in Granular Physics
25 Oct 2010 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Peter E. Schiffer
In the last two decades, condensed matter physicists have begun an intense study of the dynamic and static properties of granular media (materials made from individual acroscopic solid grains)....
Aluminum: a safe, economical, high energy density material for energy storage, transport and splitting water to make hydrogen on demand
30 Mar 2009 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jerry M. Woodall
In 1968, a team lead by the author discovered that liquid gallium saturated with aluminum at room temperature would split water into hydrogen gas, alumina and heat. More recently his current team...
Thermoelectric Power Factor Calculator for Superlattices

Quantum Simulation of the Seebeck Coefficient and Electrical Conductivity in 1D Superlattice Structures using Non-Equilibrium Green's Functions
C.V. Raman and the Impact of Raman Effect in Quantum Physics, Condensed Matter, and Materials Science
5.0 out of 5 stars
18 Sep 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Anant K. Ramdas
Raman’s momentous discovery in 1928 that the spectral analysis of the light scattered by matter, illuminated with monochromatic light of frequency ωL, reveals new signatures at (ωL ± ωi) , ωi’s...
Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 4: Geometry Optimization and Seeing What You're Doing
13 Feb 2008 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Jeffrey C Grossman, Elif Ertekin
In this lecture, we discuss various methods for finding the ground state structure of a given system by minimizing its energy. Derivative and non-derivative methods are discussed, as well as the...
Computing the Horribleness of Soft Condensed Matter
19 Oct 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Eric Jakobsson
A great triumph of computer simulations 40 years ago was to make the liquid state of matter understandable in terms of physical
interactions between individual molecules. Prior to the first...
