University at Buffalo scientists with little more than sunlight and plastic, added a third element, carbon-dipped paper, to create a highly efficient and inexpensive way to turn saltwater and contaminated water into potable water for personal use. The system could help address global drinking water shortages, especially in developing areas and regions affected by natural […]






Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) of Korea researchers have has introduced a new artificial leaf that generates hydrogen, using the power of the Sun to mimic underwater photosynthesis. The engineering offers a new artificial leaf that can convert sunlight into fuel with groundbreaking efficiency. This is a new take, looking at the […]






A research effort by professor Mahesh Bandi, head of the Collective Interactions Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) has used turbulence theory combined with experimental wind plant data to explain the statistical nature of wind power fluctuations. Its an important work not to be overlooked. Professor Bandi’s work has […]






A promising, recently identified photocatalytic new material is inexpensive graphitic carbon nitride. The hunt is on for the storage of photogenerated electric energy and its release on demand are still among the main obstacles in artificial photosynthesis. Scientists are now exploring a modified form of graphitic carbon nitride that can produce light-generated electrons and store […]






University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) researchers have developed a simple processing technique that could cut the cost of organic photovoltaics and wearable electronics. The development by the UCSB team working with three other universities is a new technique for manufacturing single-layer organic polymer solar cells that might very well move organic photovoltaics into […]
