April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Tattoos have been used for many purposes over the years. In ancient times, and in indigenous cultures, they have been representations of status and position. In our more recent past, they were used by sailors, soldiers and bikers to show membership in a "club." Today, they serve cosmetic purposes from covering scars to wearable art. It makes one wonder what the future of tattoos might be. A new study, presented at the 248th National...

How To Make More Efficient Fuel Cells
2014-07-10 03:09:31

By Glen Martin, Stanford School of Engineering Using high-brilliance X-rays, researchers track the process that fuel cells use to produce electricity, knowledge that will help make large-scale alternative energy power systems more practical and reliable Solar power and other sources of renewable energy can help combat global warming but they have a drawback: they don't produce energy as predictably as plants powered by oil, coal or natural gas. Solar panels only produce electricity...

Lithium-sulfur batteries last longer with nanomaterial-packed cathode Electric vehicles could travel farther and more renewable energy could be stored with lithium-sulfur batteries that use a unique powdery nanomaterial. Researchers added the powder, a kind of nanomaterial called a metal organic framework, to the battery's cathode to capture problematic polysulfides that usually cause lithium-sulfur batteries to fail after a few charges. A paper describing the material and its...

Energy Converted And Stored In Single Unit Using Self-charging Power Cell
2012-08-21 14:42:59

Researchers have developed a self-charging power cell that directly converts mechanical energy to chemical energy, storing the power until it is released as electrical current. By eliminating the need to convert mechanical energy to electrical energy for charging a battery, the new hybrid generator-storage cell utilizes mechanical energy more efficiently than systems using separate generators and batteries. At the heart of the self-charging power cell is a piezoelectric membrane that...

Vladimir Kozmich Zworykin (July 30, 1889 - July 29, 1982) was a Russian-American engineer, inventor, and initiator of television technology. One of his accomplishments includes the invention of a television transmitting and receiving system utilizing cathode ray tubes. In the early thirties, he was instrumental in the physical production of components used in the television, including charge storage-type tubes, infrared image tubes, and the electron microscope. Although many biographers...
