A Nagoya Institute of Technology group of researchers has developed a novel, easy to synthesize composite compound that enables the efficient use of solar energy to reduce carbon dioxide. The effort is to find sustainable methods of breaking down carbon dioxide in emissions. CO2 emissions from human activities have risen drastically over the last century […]

The elusive nuclear fusion offers the potential for a safe, clean and abundant energy source. The process, which also occurs in the sun, involves plasmas, fluids composed of charged […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Rice University engineers have created microscopic seeds for growing remarkably uniform 2D perovskite crystals that are both stable and highly efficient at harvesting electricity from sunlight. Halide perovskites are organic materials made from abundant, inexpensive ingredients, and Rice’s seeded growth method addresses both performance and production issues that have held back halide perovskite photovoltaic […]

A University of Tsukuba researcher has introduced a new theory for superconductivity that can better explain the results of recent experiments with high-temperature superconductors. By focusing on the ‘Berry connection,’ this work may lead to energy distribution with much less electrical resistance. The scientist works at the Division of Quantum Condensed Matter Physics at the […]
