Stanford University Stanford study is the first to demonstrate that sophisticated, engineered light resonators can be inserted inside cells without damaging the host. The researchers say it marks a new age in which tiny lasers and light-emitting diodes yield new avenues in the study and influence of living cells. If engineers at Stanford have their way, biological research may soon be transformed by a new class of light-emitting probes small enough to be injected into individual cells...

New Technology Means Cheaper Solar Panels
2013-02-13 19:36:22

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Solar cells are nothing new, but what may be coming is a technology to make a less expensive version of them. Silicon is used in both computer chips and solar cells, and both require a surface coating before use. This coating requires a lot of heat and energy to run in a passivation process, making it a costly step. A group of MIT researchers wrote in the journal Advanced Materials they have found a way to passivate silicon at...
