Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The power of cloaking mechanisms could eventually lead the way for developing more efficient thermoelectric devices and new kinds of electronics. MIT researchers applied the idea of harnessing the cloaking mechanisms developed to shield objects from view, to the movement of electrons. Previous work relied on metamaterials made of artificial materials with unusual properties. The composite structures used for cloaking cause light...

MIT researchers have found a way to make solar power perform more efficiently. The team's system produces power using the sun's heat with about eight times the power than previously reported for a solar thermoelectric device. Gang Chen, MIT's Carl Richard Soderberg Professor in Power Engineering and director of the Pappalardo Micro and Nano Engineering Laboratories, said on MIT's website that the concept "is very radical." The new system uses flat, stationary panels similar to traditional...

A well-established physical law describes the transfer of heat between two objects, but some physicists have long predicted that the law should break down when the objects are very close together. Scientists had never been able to confirm, or measure, this breakdown in practice. For the first time, however, MIT researchers have achieved this feat, and determined that the heat transfer can be 1,000 times greater than the law predicts.The new findings could lead to significant new applications,...
