The ability of piezoelectric materials to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy and vice versa makes them useful for various applications from robotics to communication to sensors.
A team of Chinese researchers have presented a novel method for efficient solar water splitting. The approach demonstrated in new paper in ACS Applied Materials involves modifying bismuth vanadate anodes to enhance charge separation.
As a recognition of its excellent work, the study finding of Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI) related to affordable and flexible high-energy-density lithium-sulfur batteries was reported on the front cover of one of the world’s renowned scientific journals.
EPGA Induction, a distributor of Ambrell Corporation in Mexico and Latin America, is opening an Applications Laboratory, sales, and service facility in Mexico dedicated to Ambrell induction heating products and solutions.
In a world of materials that normally expand upon heating, one that shrinks along one 3D axis while expanding along another stands out. That's especially true when the unusual shrinkage is linked to a property important for thermoelectric devices, which convert heat to electricity or electricity to heat.
Researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory are teaching microscopes to drive discoveries with an intuitive algorithm, developed at the lab's Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences, that could guide breakthroughs in new materials for energy technologies, sensing and computing.
Imagine a computer that can think as fast as the human brain while using very little energy. That's the goal of scientists seeking to discover or develop materials that can send and process signals as easily as the brain's neurons and synapses.
Every day, researchers around the world develop new technologies to usher in a carbon-free energy future.
A novel theory of cross phenomena could be applied to predict whether a new material would be effective for use in various applications from improved medical ultrasounds to more efficient refrigerators, according to a Penn State researcher.
In the daily lives of humans, the manipulation of electromagnetic waves and information has turned out to be vital. Intelligent metasurfaces have topped as smart platforms for regulating the wave–information–matter interactions in the absence of manual intervention.
