Researchers at the Laboratory for Organic Electronics at Link√∂ping University, Sweden, have created a condenser that can be charged by heat. The condenser works well enough with enough capacity it can be called a supercondenser. The new design contains no expensive or hazardous materials, has patents pending, and it should be fully possible to manufacture […]

In a completely unexpected finding, MIT researchers have discovered that tiny water droplets that form on a superhydrophobic surface, and then “jump” away from that surface, carry an electric charge. Initially the finding was that droplets could jump from a condenser surface – a component at the heart of most of the world’s electricity-generating power […]
