COLUMBUS, Ohio -- October 22, 2008 -- Researchers have created a new material that overcomes two of the major obstacles to solar power: it absorbs all the energy contained in sunlight, and generates electrons in a way that makes them easier to capture.
Ohio State University chemists and their colleagues combined electrically conductive plastic with metals including molybdenum and titanium to create the hybrid material. This new material is the first that can absorb all the energy contained in visible light at once.
October 13, 2008 - COLUMBUS, OH – The University System of Ohio is soon to be a global hub for online medical education and videoconferencing following a decision to fund the creation of a resource center in Columbus.
Columbus, Ohio – September 22, 2008 – Ohio Supercomputer Center officials today announced that the Center has entered into an agreement with Nimbis Services Inc. to connect regional industry supply chains to OSC’s Blue Collar Computing computational and expertise resources.
