Speeding up hydrogen production by the magic topological surface states

Topological non-trivial surface states can accept or donate electrons during the water electrolysis process. Credit: MPI CPfS The hydrogen economy is considered to be one of the best options for providing renewable energy and, thereby, contributing to mitigating today’s environmental challenges. The energy density of hydrogen is between 120-142 MJ/kg, which is much greater than…

The Amazon Fires Coughed Up an Enormous Plume of Carbon Monoxide

GIF: NASA/JPL-CaltechNew satellite imagery shows gigantic plumes of noxious carbon monoxide wafting over Brazil’s Amazon rainforest and surrounding areas—the result of massive forest fires currently raging in the region. The new timelapse video was produced by NASA, and it shows the movement of carbon monoxide in the upper atmosphere above South America from August 8-22.…
