Converting heat energy into power when needed
Never get stranded with a dead cell phone again. A promising new technology called Power Felt, a thermoelectric device that converts body heat into an electrical current, soon could create enough juice to make another call simply by touching it.
Researchers develops piezoelectrically active ferroelectric nanotubes
Researchers have developed a "soft template infiltration" technique for fabricating free-standing piezoelectrically active ferroelectric nanotubes and other nanostructures from PZT - a material that is attractive because of its large piezoelectric response.
Materials scientists entering new innovation territory
Solar cells, light emitting diodes, displays and other electronic devices could get a bump in performance because of a discovery at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory that establishes new boundaries for controlling band gaps.
RFID tags to help you find keys, phone or other stuff
RFID tags are becoming ubiquitous, shops, warehouses, libraries and others use them for stock and inventory control and to reduce the risk of theft.
Improved performance of Tongue Drive System
The Tongue Drive System is getting less conspicuous and more capable. Tongue Drive is a wireless device that enables people with high-level spinal cord injuries to operate a computer and maneuver an electrically powered wheelchair simply by moving their tongues.
Oxidized graphene developed
Researchers at Northwestern University have developed a new method for chemically altering graphene, a development that could be a step toward the creation of faster, thinner, flexible electronics.
Beginning of quantum computing? Single-atom transistor is end of Moore's Law
The smallest transistor ever built - in fact, the smallest transistor that can be built - has been created using a single phosphorous atom by an international team of researchers at the University of New South Wales, Purdue University and the University of Melbourne.
Low cost ink-based solar cells research
Researchers are developing solar cells that might be manufactured using special ink printed onto sheets of a supporting material, an approach that could lead to new low-cost solar cells economically competitive with other energy technologies.
Microscopy explores nanowires' weakest link
Microscopic analysis at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory is delivering a rare glimpse into how the atomic structure of the conducting nanowires affects their electronic behavior.
Liquid-crystal antenna helps stable satellite-broadcast reception
Satellite-television reception and stable Internet links to earth satellites have thus far demanded employment of stationary antennae. However, researcher has developed a space-saving, inexpensive, and extremely rapidly, electronically redirectable antenna that should allow automobiles, ships, and aircraft to maintain stable radiocommunications with earth satellites.
