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

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...

A new way of making crystalline silicon, developed by U-M researchers, could make this crucial ingredient of computers and solar cells much cheaper and greener. Silicon dioxide, or sand, makes up about 40 percent of the earth's crust, but the industrial method for converting sand into crystalline silicon is expensive and has a major environmental impact due to the extreme processing conditions. "The crystalline silicon in modern electronics is currently made through a series of...

University of California, Davis, researchers for the first time have looked inside gallium manganese arsenide, a type of material known as a "dilute magnetic semiconductor" that could open up an entirely new class of faster, smaller devices based on an emerging field known as “spintronics.” Materials of this type might be used to read and write digital information not by using the electron´s charge, as is the case with today´s electronic devices, but by using its...

Semiconductors Made Of Graphene

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) have developed a thinner, more flexible, less expensive type of semiconductor that uses graphene instead of silicon. Typically, the silicon-based semiconductors used in commercial technology are "rigid, opaque, and about half a millimeter thick," according to Gizmag's Ben Coxworth. However, a new process developed by Dr. Helge Weman, Professor...

With enough sunlight falling on home roofs to supply at least half of America's electricity, scientists today described advances toward the less-expensive solar energy technology needed to roof many of those homes with shingles that generate electricity. Shingles that generate electricity from the sun, and can be installed like traditional roofing, already are a commercial reality. But the advance “• a new world performance record for solar cells made with "earth-abundant"...
