Clemson University researchers have created a new and potentially paradigm-shifting high-performance thermoelectric compound. The team created a new hybrid compound in which the crystalline and amorphous sublattices are intertwined into a one-of-a-kind crystal-amorphic duality. Thermoelectrics directly convert heat into electricity and power a wide array of items – from NASA’s Perseverance rover currently exploring Mars […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) scientists have developed a simple way to better evaluate the potential of novel materials to store or release heat on demand in your home, office, or other building in a way that more efficiently manages the building’s energy use. Their work product, featured in Nature Energy, proposes a new […]

A new University at Buffalo study describes a new technology that provides both radiative cooling and solar heating, all in one system and without using electricity or fuel. It could help impoverished communities, reduce cooling and heating costs, lower CO2 emissions. It’s passive cooling like a shade tree provides. The researchers have been exploring how […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Kanazawa University researchers have developed a protocol to efficiently purify palladium and silver ions from industrial waste. The protocol also converts the ions into pure metallic elements. This will help increase global stocks of valuable elements that are widely needed yet in scarce supply. Many rare metals are in scarce supply, yet demand for […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) scientists have now developed three-dimensional component architectures based on novel, printable thermoelectric materials. Thermoelectric generators, TEGs for short, convert ambient heat into electrical power. They enable maintenance-free, environmentally friendly, and autonomous power supply of the continuously growing number of sensors and devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) and […]
