Harvard University is involved with two very interesting and quite promising upgrades for glass that can improve windows, solar panels and lots of other uses. University of Toronto Engineering professor Ben Hatton and colleagues at Harvard University have developed a new material to cut down on heat loss during the winter and keep buildings cool […]

A research team led by Professor Dan Li of the Department of Materials Engineering at Monash University in Australia has developed a completely new strategy to engineer graphene-based supercapacitors.  The Monash University researchers have brought next generation energy storage closer with an engineering first – a graphene-based device that is compact, yet lasts as long […]

Iowa State University’s Hui Hu and Blake Johnson are developing new technologies to accurately test and improve engine-cooling strategies.  The goal is to raise temperatures and efficiencies without damaging engine parts and pieces.  That’s important because gas turbine engines for aircraft and power plants are more efficient and burn less fuel when they run at […]

A Cold Fusion Update

August 6, 2013 | 8 Comments

The University of Missouri hosted this years International Conference on Cold Fusion (ICCF) with the largest event being the Defkalion Demonstration.  The short description is the Defkalion reactor functioned satisfactorily. The ICCF ran over five days with an impressive group of experimentalists, theorists and engineers attending.  The list of presenters was also impressive, with talks […]

A University of Colorado Boulder team has developed a radically new technique that uses the power of sunlight to efficiently split water into its components of hydrogen and oxygen.  If the team can take the concept to a working model they will have a real new idea for making hydrogen fuel. CU-Boulder Professor Alan Weimer […]
