  4. 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...

  5. Fun in the Sand: Some Experiments in Granular Physics

    25 Oct 2010 | | 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). These materials offer a vast arena of new physical phenomena which are highly accessible and largely...

  7. Aluminum: a safe, economical, high energy density material for energy storage, transport and splitting water to make hydrogen on demand

    30 Mar 2009 | | 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 has discovered that bulk, solid Al rich alloys will also split water in the same manner. Since 1)...

  9. C.V. Raman and the Impact of Raman Effect in Quantum Physics, Condensed Matter, and Materials Science

    18 Sep 2008 | | 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 being the internal frequencies of the matter [Nature121, 501 (1928); Indian Journal of Physics 2, 387...

  10. Computational Nanoscience, Lecture 4: Geometry Optimization and Seeing What You're Doing

    13 Feb 2008 | | 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 importance of the starting guess and how to find or generate good initial structures. We also briefly...

  11. Computing the Horribleness of Soft Condensed Matter

    19 Oct 2007 | | 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 simulations of liquid argon and liquid water in the 1960's, there was no quantitatively rigorous molecular...
