Zaha Hadid Architects Design Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Petroleum Studies & Research Center

Zaha Hadid Architects have designed Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s new King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center. The desert laboratory is meant to make minimal energy demands in an area that is well-known for its extreme temperatures. The central research building is highlighted by angular prows that extend across the surface area, while intricate patterns have […]

Ames Laboratory, UConn discover superconductor with bounce

(DOE/Ames Laboratory) The US Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory has discovered extreme 'bounce,' or super-elastic shape-memory properties in a material that could be applied for use as an actuator in the harshest of conditions, such as outer space, and might be the first in a whole new class of shape memory materials.

Cool roofs have water saving benefits too

(DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) The energy and climate benefits of cool roofs have been well established: By reflecting rather than absorbing the sun's energy, light-colored roofs keep buildings, cities, and even the entire planet cooler. Show More Summary

Researchers customize catalysts to boost product yields, decrease separation costs
