New world record efficiency for thin film silicon solar cells
A remarkable step was achieved by the team led by Dr. Fanny Meillaud and Dr. Matthieu Despeisse with a new world record efficiency of 10.7% for a single-junction microcrystalline silicon solar cell, independently confirmed at Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE CalLab PV Cells) in Freiburg (Germany).
Wireless power transfer technology for high capacity transit
The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and the Korea Railroad Research Institute (KRRI) have developed a wireless power transfer technology that can be applied to high capacity transportation systems such as railways, harbor freight, and airport transportation and logistics.
New lithium-ion battery design with improved capacity and recharge more quickly
New design uses silicon nanoparticles to improve capacity and recharge more quickly
Mobile phone technology to build up a virtual 3D environment
Research into using simple video clips to build up a virtual 3D environment has won a Best Paper award for a team from the Department of Engineering.
Technology improves GPS precision in cities by 90%
Researchers have developed a new system which improves the ability of a GPS to determine a vehicle's position as compared to that of conventional GPS devices by up to 90 percent, and which can be installed in any vehicle at a very low cost.
Engineer Designs Self-Powered Nanoscale Devices That Never Need New Batteries
It's relatively simple to build a device capable of detecting wireless signals if you don't mind making one that consumes lots of power.
Innovation Model Aims to Help Companies Make Products We Actually Want
Researchers have developed a model that will, hopefully, help companies develop innovative products that people actually want to use. The model is a first step towards capturing the behavior of both companies and consumers, so that we end up with more iPods and fewer Edsels.
'Solar sponge' to recycle Carbon monoxide emissions using renewable energy.
The breakthrough presents a new way to recycle CO2 emissions using renewable energy. The 'sponge' which is made from a new smart material called a MOF - metal organic framework - adsorbs carbon dioxide, but when exposed to sunlight, instantaneously releases it.
Humans and robots work better together following cross-training
Swapping of roles improves efficiency as well as robots’ confidence and humans’ trust.
3D Printing on the Micrometer Scale
With this printer, smallest three-dimensional objects, often smaller than the diameter of a human hair, can be manufactured with minimum time consumption and maximum resolution. The printer is based on a novel laser lithography method.
