Paper Spotlights Key Flaw in Widely Used Radioisotope Dating TechniqueExternal link

An oversight in a radioisotope dating technique used to date everything from meteorites to geologic samples means that scientists have likely overestimated the age of many samples, according to new research from North Carolina State University. Read MoreExternal linkage

Manganese Oxides in Treatment System Could Be Mixed BlessingExternal link

Researchers at North Carolina State University found that a fungal catalyst can oxidize manganese, creating oxides which have a large affinity for metals thus creating a passive treatment to remove micro-pollutants out of water. Read MoreExternal linkage

Researchers Create First Entropy-Stabilized Complex Oxide AlloysExternal link

Researchers from North Carolina State University and Duke University have created the first entropy-stabilized alloy that incorporates oxides – and demonstrated conclusively that the crystalline structure of the material can be determined by disorder at the atomic scale rather than chemical bonding.
