Researchers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, using molecular dynamics simulations, have solved a decade-old mystery, and their findings could eventually lead to commercially practical designs of storage materials for use in hydrogen vehicles. Their research was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on March 4, 2008. Full Story


The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2018, its budget is $7.8 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
