West Virginia researchers use neutrons to study materials for power plant improvements
Finding new, more efficient ways to produce power is a critical mission for the Department of Energy (DOE), and developing more advanced materials is often the key to achieving success.

Crystal structure discovered almost 200 years ago could hold key to solar cell revolution
Solar energy researchers at Oregon State University are shining their scientific spotlight on materials with a crystal structure discovered nearly two centuries ago.
A new fundamental understanding of polymeric relaxor ferroelectric behavior could lead to advances in flexible electronics, actuators and transducers, energy storage, piezoelectric sensors and electrocaloric cooling, according to a team of researchers at Penn State and North Carolina State.
