Tokyo Institute of Technology (TIT) scientists demonstrated that breaking open the trade-off problem between thermopower and conductivity improves thermoelectric performance. Energy consumption in developed countries has been rather wasteful. Nearly two-thirds of the total energy is typically discarded as “waste heat,” which ends up simply dumped into the atmosphere. Lately, finding a way to productively […]

A University of Minnesota led research team has discovered a new nano-scale thin film material with the highest-ever conductivity in its class. The new material could lead to smaller, faster, and more powerful electronics, as well as more efficient solar cells. The researchers are said what makes this new material so unique is that it […]

Researchers at TU Delft have identified a new huge potential of nanocrystals in fuel cells.  The Delft researchers are the first to document the idea accurately with their second article on the subject. The latest paper was published in the scientific journal, Advanced Functional Materials. The addition of the extremely small nanocrystals to a solid […]
