Using the largest laser in the world that focuses on deuterium and tritium (DT) fuel targets converting them into helium in a fusion reaction, the Laser Inertial Fusion Energy (LIFE) project aims to demonstrate an innovative source of safe, green, renewable, and clean energy.
Researchers have developed a tick surveillance program to determine the tick densities on deer-hunting grounds over the next five years. Two methods of tick collection are tested for this program. Hopefully this will contribute to the control of Lyme Disease risk.
Nano-structured thermoelectric materials allow energy to be reclaimed from waste heat, turning potential heat loss into electricity. High efficiency thermoelectric devices are being developed.
