High-power thermoelectric generator utilises thermal difference of only 5°c
10.07.2018 - 23:32
A silicon-nanowire thermoelectric generator has been developed by a team of researchers from Waseda University, Osaka University, and Shizuoka University.According to the Japanese researchers, this experimentally demonstrated a high-power density of 12 microwatts per 1cm2, enough to drive sensors or realise intermittent wireless communication,...
Self-heating, fast-charging battery makes electric vehicles climate-immune
02.07.2018 - 23:37
A self-heating battery has been created by a team of Penn State engineers to combat the issue surrounding climate restrictions, rapid recharging and electric vehicles (EV)."EVs are popular on the west coast because the weather is conducive," explains assistant research professor, Xiao-Guang Yang of Penn State. "Once you move them...
BNAs improve performance of Li-ion batteries
02.07.2018 - 23:34
The effect of hierarchical Bi2MoO6 nanosheet arrays growing on 3D Ni foam synthesised by one-step template-free route has been investigated by a team form Northeastern University.According to Northeasten, the obtained BNAs used directly as binder-free integrated electrode for Li-ion batteries (LIBs) exhibits a “super high” reversibl...
Atomically thin light-emitting device opens the possibility for 'invisible' displays
27.03.2018 - 23:35
A bright-light emitting device that is millimetres wide and fully transparent when turned off has been built by a team of engineers at the University of California (UC), Berkeley. The light emitting material is a monolayer semiconductor, which is just three atoms thick. According to the team, this discovery could pave the way in creating i...
Physicists reveal material for high-speed quantum internet
27.03.2018 - 23:28
As the race for quantum computing continues, so does the development into quantum technologies targeted to neturalise the threat of hacking.Classical cryptographic algorithms are complexity-based and can remain secure only for a certain period of time. Unlike its classical counterpart, quantum cryptography relies on the fundamental laws of phys...
