Hydrogen energy has the potential to meet the United Nations net zero emissions target; however, its industrial application has been stalled by the control and storage difficulties.
Collaboration led by PPPL has identified a chemical pathway to an innovative nanomaterial that could lead to large-scale production for applications ranging from spacesuits to military vehicles.
Researchers from ITMO’s School of Physics and Engineering have created a paste of titanium dioxide and resonant silicon nanoparticles that will increase the generation of photocurrent in perovskite solar cells and maximize their efficiency.
The current method of manufacturing carbon nanotubes--in essence rolled up sheets of graphene--is unable to allow complete control over their diameter, length and type.
There's no need to don uncomfortable smartwatches or chest straps to monitor your heart if your comfy shirt can do a better job.
Invisibly minute carbon nanotubes, drawn as fibers and sewn into fabrics, turn out to be a thermoelectric generator that can convert heat from the sun or other sources into energy.
The project was kickstarted in 2017 when a delegation of YTC America (subsidiary of Yazaki Corporation) visited Kazan Federal University.
As devices continue to be built on an increasingly small scale, scientists are looking toward developing ways to engineer materials at the atomic level.
It's always good when your hard work reflects well on you.
Scientists have learned how to place crystalline defects in new materials with atomic-scale precision.
