Texas A&M University researchers have used advanced data science methods and ideas from the social sciences to compare the performance of different wind turbine designs. With a global impetus toward utilizing more renewable energy sources, wind presents a promising, and increasingly tapped resource. Despite the many technological advancements made in upgrading wind-powered systems, a systematic […]

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 […]

Texas A&M University researchers have developed a model that can better predict the physical phenomenon inside of very-high-temperature pebble-bed reactors. Reactors have improved exponentially in terms of safety, sustainability and efficiency. Unlike the light-water reactors at Fukushima, which had liquid coolant and uranium fuel, the current generation of reactors has a variety of coolant options, […]

University of California – Santa Barbara researchers have uncovered a major cause of limitations to efficiency in perovskite solar cells. Various possible defects in the lattice of what are known as hybrid perovskites had previously been considered as the potential cause of such limitations, but it was assumed that the organic molecules (the components responsible […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Arizona researchers recently developed an innovative technique to capture the unused solar energy that illuminates a solar panel. The team created special holograms that can be easily inserted into the solar panel package. Each hologram separates the colors of sunlight and directs them to the solar cells within the solar panel. This […]
