Metal alloy nano-foams as Catalysts for Methane Dry Reforming during GTL

Today, about 90% of catalysts for GTL technology take the form of supported nanocatalysts. In these materials, metallic nanocrystals (the active catalytic phase) are dispersed about a highly porous ceramic oxide (inactive). These materials are advantageous because they provide exceptionally large surface areas for processing large amounts of gas, however, they all suffer from a […] Read More >

Bio-inspired flexible piezoelectric layer showing powerful performance

The piezoelectric effect, the conversion of mechanical energy to electrical energy can serve as the basictechnology for many applications such as energy harvesting sensing and actuating. Currently, the fieldof piezoelectric materials is dominate by lead-based ceramic materials such as lead zirconate titanate(PZT). However, lead is toxic and brittle, emerging the need for alternative lead free, […] Read More >

The central dogma in the study of protein folding suggests that the thermodynamically-favorable state of proteins under physiological conditions is their folded one. However, there are number of cases in which the favorable states of proteins are rather unfolded, partially folded (e.g., “molten globular”), or misfolded (e.g., nonspecific aggregates or amyloid fibrils). These observations lead […] Read More >

We search for simple biophysical and mathematical laws that define the behavior of cells, and specifically of neurons. Our primary biophysical goal is to understand and measure the relation between cellular events and water displacement. We wish to employ this knowledge for the development of MRI techniques for characterization of cellular microstructures and cellular events. […] Read More >

Research Projects Methane Dry Reforming Catalysts (GTL) The worldwide crude oil supply will deplete in approximately 45 years if we continue at our current rate of consumption.By comparison, the world’s natural gas (80-99% methane) supply is predicted to be large enough to supply our energy needs for the next millennium. This project seeks to synthesize […] Read More >
