The determination of molecular structure at atomic resolution is one of the great triumphs of science. The techniques that are used to determine this information have reached a high level of maturity and sophistication and they are slowly being incorporated as routine techniques in laboratories all over the world. Molecular structure is used for the development of new medicines including personalized medicines. This is a music video overview of the three major techniques of structural...

Solar energy storage at the individaul level - Prof. Daniel Nocera – MIT

submitted by: icamvid
Abstract. The capture and storage of solar energy at the individual level – personalized solar energy – drives inextricably towards the heart of this energy challenge by addressing the triumvirate of secure, carbon neutral and plentiful energy. Because energy use scales with wealth, pointofuse solar energy will put individuals, in the smallest village in the nonlegacy world and in the largest city of the legacy world, on a more level playing field. Moreover, personalized energy (PE)...
