Researchers release roadmap to denuclearization
Immediate denuclearization of North Korean is dangerous to both North Korean and American interests, say Stanford scholars in a new research report. Instead, they advocate for phased denuclearization to take place over 10 years or more, allowing the United States to reduce the greatest risks first and address the manageable risks over time.

Turning up the heat on thermoelectrics
Imagine being able to power your car partly from the heat that its engine gives off. Or what if you could get a portion of your home's electricity from the heat that a power plant emits' Such energy-efficient scenarios may one day be possible with improvements in thermoelectric materials - which spontaneously produce electricity when one side of the material is heated.

Polymer crystals hold key to record-breaking energy transport
Polymer crystals hold key to record-breaking energy transport
Scientists from the universities of Bristol and Cambridge have found a way to create polymeric semiconductor nanostructures that absorb light and transport its energy further than previously observed. This could pave the way for more flexible and more efficient solar cells and photodetectors. The researchers, whose work appears , say their findings could be a “game changer” by allowing the energy from sunlight absorbed in these materials to be captured and used more efficiently.
