researchers Developing a new, portable, clean energy source that could change the way we power mobile electronics: human motion.
From ocean waves to the action of walking across a floor, energy is all around us. Now, a materials scientist from Georgia Tech has developed a system to capture that “wasted energy” and convert it into electricity.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology want to put your signature up in lights – tiny lights, that is.
Using bundles of vertical zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have fabricated arrays of piezotronic transistors capable of converting mechanical motion directly into electronic controlling signals. The arrays could help give robots a more adaptive sense of touch, provide better security in handwritten signatures and offer new ways for humans to interact with electronic devices.
A new form of very hard carbon clusters capable of indenting diamond has been observed by a team of Carnegie Institution for Science researchers.
Researchers have used zinc oxide microwires to significantly improve the efficiency at which gallium nitride light-emitting diodes (LED) convert electricity to ultraviolet light.
Taking advantage of the unique properties of zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have demonstrated a new type of piezoelectric resistive switching device in which the write-read access of memory cells is controlled by electromechanical modulation.
