Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Texas at Austin researchers have discovered new dynamics that could supercharge a sluggish part of the core chemical reaction in fuel cells. Fuel cell market adoption is held back by sluggish kinetics in a part of the core chemical reaction that limits efficiency. The researchers developed a new method to improve the […]

University of Utah researchers identified crucial electrical noise signals in solar cells that are completely invisible to conventional noise-measuring methods. They were also able to pinpoint the likely physical processes causing the noise, which often results in a loss of energy and lower efficiency. The physicists used cross-correlation noise spectroscopy to measure miniscule fluctuations in […]
