PULLMAN, Wash. – A group of Washington State University students has designed a plan for an innovative and economical fueling station that could help make environmentally friendly, hydrogen-powered cars a viable option for future transportation.
PULLMAN – WSU Professor Matt McCluskey has discovered a new type of atomic oscillation that could impact solid-state phenomena ranging from diffusion to electronic device performance. The result was published in the April issue of the journal Physical Review Letters, http://link.aps.org/abstract/PRL/v102/e135502.
The practical implications of the phenomenon McCluskey has discovered include better understanding of matters like how heat is dissipated from computer chips.
