Black Silicon Solar Cells
Solar cells convert three-quarters of the energy contained in the Sun's spectrum into electricity - yet the infrared spectrum is entirely lost in standard solar cells.
Can Computers Understand Art?
Understanding and evaluating art has widely been considered as a task meant for humans, until now. Computer scientists Lior Shamir and Jane Tarakhovsky of Lawrence Technological University in Michigan tackled the question "can machines understand art?"
Solar Cell Production Method Improved
The competition in the photovoltaics market is fierce. When it comes to price, Asian manufacturers are frequently ahead of the competition by a nose.
Poster Scotch Tape and glass slides used to create high-temperature superconductors
An international team led by University of Toronto physicists has developed a simple new technique to induce high-temperature superconductivity in a semiconductor for the first time - using Scotch Tape.
Field-Tested roof and attic design improves efficiency
Field-Tested roof and attic designed at Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory keeps homes cool in summer and prevents heat loss in winter, a multi-seasonal efficiency uncommon in roof and attic design.
Global Energy Demand can be Powered by Wind
There is enough energy available in winds to meet all of the world's demand. Atmospheric turbines that convert steadier and faster high-altitude winds into energy could generate even more power than ground- and ocean-based units.
Woven Fabric is Actually Electronic Sensor
Researchers have developed a new kind of anti-theft system, based on a woven fabric that triggers an alarm when penetrated by intruders. The smart fabric enables the exact location of the break-in to be identified, and is significantly cheaper than other burglary detection systems. It is also suitable as an invisible means of protecting entire buildings.
Cold Crack-Resistant Steel
Cold cracking in high-strength steel presents major quality assurance challenges for the automotive and machine-building industries, since cracks are difficult to predict, until now.
Wing Icing Protection Using Nanomaterials
When ice builds-up on the wings of aircrafts, it drives up costs and impedes safety and in the worst case scenario, could even cause an aircraft to crash. At the ILA Berlin Air Show from September 11 - 16, researchers will demonstrate new ways to keep ice off of the aircraft's wings (Hall 3, Booth 3221).
Sensors that detect contaminants in water
Many organic contaminants in the air and in drinking water need to be detected at very low-level concentrations.
