Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) researchers have now produced perovskite/CIS tandem solar cells with an efficiency of nearly 25 percent – the highest value achieved thus far with this technology. In addition the new combination of materials is light and versatile, making it possible to envision the use of these tandem solar cells in vehicles, […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… In 2021 Antia Botana, professor of physics at Arizona State University experienced the highlight of her early career. Working with experimentalist Julia Mundy at Harvard University, she discovered a new superconducting material – a quintuple-layer nickelate. They reported their findings in Nature Materials in September 2021. The discovery lets researchers explore similarities and differences […]

A Hong Kong University of Science and Technology research team has developed a new electrode design that is set to enable the rechargeability of alkaline zinc batteries, one of the most common types of non-rechargeable batteries used in our daily lives, shedding light on a wider application of rechargeable batteries. The team’s research work has […]

Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences researchers have developed a new method to dramatically extend the lifetime of organic aqueous flow batteries. The development improves the commercial viability of a technology that has the potential to safely and inexpensively store energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar. Michael Aziz, […]

Lise-Marie Lacroix from the Université de Toulouse, France, with colleagues from Toulouse, Grenoble and Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A have used a mathematical technique, finite element simulation, to optimize the design of an electromagnetic energy harvester so that it generates electricity as efficiently as possible. The scientists integrated the math into computer modeling to optimize the design […]
