ITL Researcher Develops Two Tandem Cells Embedded with Nanoparticles for Converting Windows to Solar Cells

ITL Researcher Develops Two Tandem Cells Embedded with Nanoparticles for Converting Windows to Solar Cells

The researcher Sandra Casillas from the Technological Institute of La Laguna (ITL), in the north of Mexico, has managed to patent 20 projects, and an example of her work is the design of two Tandem cells that turns windows into a solar panel capable of capturing up to eight volts per square meter of light and allows to recharge electronics. It is also transparent, allowing visibility. [More]

3D Mapping of Carbon Nanotube Distribution in Composite Materials

3D Mapping of Carbon Nanotube Distribution in Composite Materials

Carbon nanotubes are small simple structures with several amazing properties but these properties have not been fully exploited as there is still something very mysterious about them. A research team including scientists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has now succeeded in unravelling a part of that mystery by developing advanced image collecting and processing techniques for mapping the nanoscale structure of carbon nanotubes within a composite material in three dimensions.
