University of Central Florida researchers use particle accelerator on DIB

January 12, 2021 |

In Florida, researchers at the University of Central Florida used the Advanced Light Source, a powerful particle accelerator at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, to identify 46 molecules that are present in the flames of biofuel diisobutylene (DIB), a natural byproduct of sugar, during ignition. This is the first time that DIB has been studied […]

UCF researcher develops new method for chemical “fingerprints”

August 13, 2015 |

In Florida, a researcher now at the University of Central Florida has developed a new method for identifying materials’ unique chemical “fingerprints” and mapping their chemical properties at a much higher spatial resolution than ever before. It’s a discovery that could have promising implications for fields as varied as biofuel production, solar energy, opto-electronic devices, pharmaceuticals […]
