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 […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Penn State researchers have developed new ultrathin metal electrodes allowing the creation of semitransparent perovskite solar cells that are highly efficient and can be coupled with traditional silicon cells to greatly boost the performance of both devices. The research represents a step toward developing completely transparent solar cells. Kai Wang, assistant research professor of […]

The now-familiar sight of traditional propeller wind turbines could be replaced in the future with wind farms containing more compact and efficient vertical turbines. New research from Oxford Brookes University has found that the vertical turbine design is far more efficient than traditional turbines in large scale wind farms, and when set in pairs the […]

A review paper examines the 6-decade history of neutral particle analysis (NPA), a vital diagnostic tool used in magnetic plasma confinement devices such as tokamaks that will house the nuclear fusion process and generate the clean energy of the future. As the world’s energy demands grow, so too does growing concern over the environmental impact […]
