The approach, developed by scientists at Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Technology (DGIST), with colleagues in Korea and India is cost-effective and biocompatible, and can help charge […]

University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences researchers have released information in four new studies that explore chemical-free pretreatment methods, development of high-throughput phenotyping methods, and commercial-scale techno-economic feasibility of producing fuel from energycane in various scenarios. The studies begin to answer that challenges remaining in processing the crops to extract fuel […]

University of Michigan researchers have developed a new electrode that could free up 20% more light from organic light-emitting diodes. It could help extend the battery life of smartphones and laptops, or make next-gen televisions and displays much more energy efficient.   The approach prevents light from being trapped in the light-emitting part of an […]

A Pohang University research team proposes a new direction for designing highly efficient spin Seebeck-based thermoelectric devices. The POSTECH joint research team – led by Professor Hyungyu Jin and Ph.D. candidate Min Young Kim of the Department of Mechanical Engineering with Professor Si-Young Choi of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering – has succeeded […]

Purdue University’s Yulia Puskhar, a biophysicist and professor of physics in Purdue’s College of Science, may have a way to harness photosynthetic energy by mimicking plants. Plants can make energy directly from the sun. That process of turning sunlight directly into usable energy – called photosynthesis – may soon be a feat humans are able […]
