Stanford researchers describe how they observed the hydrogen-oxygen reaction in a specific type of high-efficiency solid-oxide fuel cell and took atomic-scale "snapshots" of this process using a particle accelerator known as a synchrotron.

The knowledge gained from this first-of-its-kind analysis may lead to even more efficient fuel cells that could, in turn, make utility-scale alternative energy systems more practical.

Do not fold, spindle or mutilate.

Three Stanford Researchers believe that they’ve discovered just such a flexible, switchable material. It is a crystal that can form a paper-like sheet just three atoms thick.

Charging Ahead: Materials science and engineering associate prof. Yi Cui is pioneering the use of nanoscale materials like silicon and sulfur, rarely or never before incorporated into batteries.

His group is building and testing batteries that last longer, store more energy and charge faster—all while keeping prices low.

Prof. Bob Sutton shares some of the main lessons he learned about most group brainstorming experiments and why he thinks they don't provide much useful information about the pros and cons of the technique.

#DidYouKnow: Today marks Nikola Tesla's 158th birthday.

To celebrate the father of modern electricity, Yahoo has compiled a list of strange facts about the inventor.
Nikola Tesla may be known today as one of history's greatest inventors, but the intrepid scientist's eccentricities have become as legendary as his trailblazing discoveries in the field of electricity. Tomorrow (July 10) marks the 158th anniversary of Tesla's birth, and to celebrate the occasion, Live Science is looking back at Tesla's legacy, the cult of personality that has developed around the inventor in the years after his death, and the dec...

Introduction
Welcome to the Stanford School of Engineering’s Official G+ page.
You can also find us on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/stanfordeng. We're a community of people who solve important problems by applying science with creativity and ingenuity: We're engineers! At Stanford Engineering our research and teaching is meant to educate leaders and help solve global challenges.

Since its founding in 1925, the School of Engineering has given rise to engineers who have made indelible marks on society – from driving the technological revolution to founding thousands of companies worldwide. We look forward to even more successes in the years ahead. Thank you for being part of the Stanford Engineering legacy.
