Scientists go deep to quantify perovskite properties

Led by Rice University and Los Alamos National Laboratory, a recent study offers new insights on electronic properties in quantum-scale devices that are likely to impact...
Förster resonance energy transfer can measure the distance between two probes during the dynamic movement of a protein. The Observable-driven Design of Effective Molecular Models method developed by scientists at Rice University can adjust a protein model to improve the agreement between experimental data and simulated results.

Sub-sea rift spills secrets to seismic probe

A new study by the Rice University reveals insights about the development of the blame that isolates the continental and oceanic plates. This is...
Rice University scientists built computer models of intermediate reactions to understand why salt lowers reaction temperatures in the synthesis of two-dimensional compounds. Above left, molybdenum oxychloride precursor molecules undergo sulfurization in which sulfur atoms replace oxygen atoms. That sets up the material to form new compounds. At right, the calculations show the charge densities of the new molecules. Courtesy of the Yakobson Group

Salt optimizes creation of 2-D materials

Rice University scientists used a dash of salt to simplify the creation of two-dimensional materials that combined transition metals and chalcogens.Scientists believe that the discovery...
A simplified schematic shows the basic idea behind a Rice University experiment to detect a Bloch-Siegert shift in strongly coupled light and matter. In this illustration, a light field rotating in the opposite direction to an orbiting electron still interacts with the electron in a cavity, in this case the empty space between two mirrors. The influence of resonance on the counter-rotating element defines the shift. Illustration by Xinwei Li

Quantum shift shows itself in coupled light and matter

Scientists at the Rice University utilized a remarkable mix of methods to see a condensed matter phenomenon about which others have just theorized. The...
