An international team led by University of Groningen has now produced an n-type organic semiconductor with superior properties that brings organic thermoelectric material a big step closer. Thermoelectric materials can turn a temperature difference into electricity. Organic thermoelectric materials could be used to power wearable electronics or sensors; however, the power output is still very […]

DOE/Brookhaven National Laboratory scientists have developed a new way to decipher the atomic-level structure of materials based on data gleaned from ground-up powder samples. They describe their approach and demonstrate its ability to solve the structure of a material that shows promise for shuttling ions through sodium-ion batteries.   The scientists at the U.S. Department […]

University of Bath scientists have discovered a way to generate electricity from nylon – the stretchy fabric used widely in sportswear and other shape-hugging apparel – raising hopes that our clothes will become an important source of energy. The scientists have found a way to produce nylon fibers that are smart enough to produce electricity […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A Los Alamos National Laboratory’s key energy security mission is developing safe and sustainable fuels for nuclear energy. For now uranium dioxide, a radioactive actinide oxide, is the most widely used nuclear fuel in today’s nuclear power plants. But a new “combustion synthesis” process recently established for lanthanide metals – non-radioactive elements that are […]

Incheon National University scientists have announced a novel transparent solar cell design using thin silicon films, with efficient power generation. Solar power has shown immense potential as a futuristic, ‘clean’ source of energy. Its not a wonder environmentalists worldwide have been looking for ways to advance the current solar cell technology. Now, scientists have put […]
