Longstanding bottleneck in crystal structure prediction solved
Two years after its release, the HIV-1 drug Ritonavir was pulled from the market. Scientists discovered that the drug had crystallized into a slightly different form-called a polymorph-that was less soluble and made it ineffective as a treatment. View News Article (2014-09-26)

New cell sorting method developed by UH Manoa mechanical engineer
UH Mānoa College of Engineering mechanical engineer Yi Zuo has developed a new, high-throughput method for sorting cells capable of separating 10 billion bacterial cells in 30 minutes. View News Article (2014-09-26)

'Multi-spectra glasses' for scanning electron microscopy
Reflection zone plates produced by HZB enable lighter elements in material samples to be precisely detected using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) by providing high resolution in the range of 50-1120 eV. View News Article (2014-09-26)

Paraffins to cut energy consumption in homes
40% of the total consumption of energy in Europe takes place in buildings, so reducing this consumption is becoming increasingly important. View News Article (2014-09-24)

Smart meters could cause conflict for housemates, study shows
Arguments about whose turn it is to do the washing up, negotiating rights to the TV remote control and disputes over noise - as many students returning to university for the new academic year are about to learn the hard way, sharing a house can be a tricky business.  View News Article (2014-09-24)

State policies are effective in reducing power plant emissions, CU-Boulder-led analysis finds
A new study led by the University of Colorado Boulder found that different strategies used by states to reduce power plant emissions -- direct ones such as emission caps and indirect ones like encouraging renewable energy -- are both effective. The study is the first analysis of its kind. View News Article (2014-09-24)

Researchers discover solar energy-driven process makes tailings ponds reclamation instant
Cleaning up oil sands tailings has just gotten a lot greener thanks to a novel technique developed by University of Alberta civil engineering professors that uses solar energy to accelerate tailings pond reclamation efforts by industry. View News Article (2014-09-24)

First Water-Based Nuclear Battery Developed by MU Researcher Can Be Used to Generate Electrical Energy
From cell phones to cars and flashlights, batteries play an important role in everyday life. Scientists and technology companies constantly are seeking ways to improve battery life and efficiency. View News Article (2014-09-17)

Research offers new way to predict hurricane strength, destruction
A new study by Florida State University researchers demonstrates a different way of projecting a hurricane's strength and intensity that could give the public a better idea of a storm's potential for destruction. View News Article (2014-09-16)

Cutting the cloud computing carbon cost
Cloud computing involves displacing data storage and processing from the user's computer on to remote servers. It can provide users with more storage space and computing power that they can then access from anywhere in the world rather than having to connect to a single desktop or other computer with its finite resources.  View News Article (2014-09-15)
