One useful property that so far has not been observed in perovskites is called “carrier multiplication”, an effect that makes materials much more efficient in converting light into electricity. Perovskites form a group of crystals that have many promising properties for applications in nano-technology. New research performed in collaboration between the University of Amsterdam (UA) […]

Purdue University assistant professor of chemical engineering Yue Wu leads a team developing a technique that uses nanotechnology to harvest energy from hot pipes or engine components.  The team has coated glass fibers with a new thermoelectric material they developed. When thermoelectric materials are heated on one side electrons flow to the cooler side, generating […]

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 […]
