Your Signature In Lights
2013-08-12 06:20:58

Georgia Institute of Technology Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology want to put your signature up in lights – tiny lights, that is. Using thousands of nanometer-scale wires, the researchers have developed a sensor device that converts mechanical pressure – from a signature or a fingerprint – directly into light signals that can be captured and processed optically. The sensor device could provide an artificial sense of touch, offering sensitivity comparable to that...

Researchers Use Liquid Metal To Build 3-D Structures
2013-07-09 14:28:19

North Carolina State University [ Watch The Video 3D Printing of Liquid Metals at Room Temperature ] Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed three-dimensional (3-D) printing technology and techniques to create free-standing structures made of liquid metal at room temperature. "It's difficult to create structures out of liquids, because liquids want to bead up. But we've found that a liquid metal alloy of gallium and indium reacts to the oxygen in the air at...

Sets New Record with Concentrator Triple-Junction Compound Solar Cell Osaka, June 14, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) - Sharp Corporation has achieved the world's highest solar cell conversion efficiency(2) of 44.4%(1), using a concentrator triple-junction compound solar cell. These solar cells are used in a lens-based concentrator system that focuses sunlight on the cells to generate electricity.This latest Sharp breakthrough came about through research and development...

Manganese, Gallium Nitride Merged In Uniform layer
2013-06-07 12:10:07

Ohio University Ten years ago, scientists were convinced that a combination of manganese and gallium nitride could be a key material to create spintronics, the next generation of electronic devices that operate on properties found at the nanoscale. But researchers grew discouraged when experiments indicated that the two materials were as harmonious as oil and water. A new study led by Ohio University physicists suggests that scientists should take another look at this materials duo,...

University of Cincinnati research describes discovery of a new structure that is a fundamental game changer in the physics of semiconductor nanowires. There´s big news in the world of tiny things. New research led by University of Cincinnati physics professors Howard Jackson and Leigh Smith could contribute to better ways of harnessing solar energy, more effective air quality sensors or even stronger security measures against biological weapons such as anthrax. And it all starts...

Nanowires May Mean More Efficient, Cheaper Solar Panels
2013-04-08 19:16:36

Enid Burns for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Nanowires could be the answer for constructing solar panels with less materials and lower costs. Researchers at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne (EPFL) are working on new technology to advance solar panels. New research on tiny filaments called nanowires has made some promising findings. Influenced by nature, researcher Anna Fontcuberta i Morral looked at how trees in a forest stand upright to collect energy from the...
