Research is Published in the Royal Society of Chemistry's Journal of Materials Chemistry A. RED BANK, N.J., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In making a solar cell, scientists etch nanoscale spikes into a silicon wafer in order to maximize its surface area and consequently to maximize the amount of sunlight to reach it. Metal particles have been used as a catalyst in this process because etching is much accelerated near metal particles. Initially, gold had been the metal of choice. But...

Tiny Flexible Power Supply

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Searchers from the Royal Society of Chemistry have created a tiny power supply that is made of a flexible material. This powerful micro-supercapacitor is just nanometers thick - or thin, as the case may be - and this could help electronics companies develop devices such as mobile phones and cameras that are smaller, lighter and thinner than ever before. The bottleneck for making smaller electronic devices such as mobile phones has been...
