Designable spatially coherent wideband radiation and frequency conversion – BIOENGINEER.ORG

Components of a typical laser include gain medium, laser pumping energy and resonant optical cavity. The output frequency of most lasers is fixed or within a small range, and it is difficult to generate lasers of some frequencies by common ways. Regarding some practical applications, optical frequency conversion technology which can convert the laser into … Read more

Illinois Tech researchers awarded grant to scale up innovative carbon capture and conversion process at the source – BIOENGINEER.ORG

CHICAGO — April 20, 2022 — Illinois Institute of Technology Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering Mohammad Asadi received $ 1.9 million from the Advanced Research Projects Agency — Energy (ARPA-E) to scale up a process that he developed in the lab for capturing carbon dioxide directly from exhaust gas sources and converting it into valuable … Read more

These Microbes Breathe Methane And Turn It Into Electricity in a Weird Living Battery

As far as greenhouse gases go, methane is the quiet villain that could stealthily drag us ever deeper into the climate crisis. In our atmosphere, it is at least 25 times more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide. It’s also not that efficient – through burning, less than half of the energy in natural … Read more
