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...

Silica Gel, made synthetically from sodium silicate, is granular, vitreous, highly porous form of silica. Silica is a naturally occurring mineral that is purified and processed into either granular or beaded form. It has a strong affinity for water molecules. Silica gel is commonly used as a desiccant where it is packed in vapor-permeable plastic in order to control local humidity in order to avoid spoilage or degradation of some goods. Due to their high absorption of moisture and...
