A special issue of the journal Advances in Applied Ceramics (Maney Publishing and IOM3) focuses on photosensitive materials that may be applied to convert solar energy into other energy forms. It provides an overview of the latest research on the development of materials for hydrogen energy, and aspects of hydrogen energy including generation, usage, storage and related spin-offs. The focus is on materials for photo-electrochemical energy converters and related environmentally friendly applications, including antipollution and self-cleaning building materials.
The 20 articles include:
- Transport and use of solar energy in hydrogen, W Stein, R Benito and M Chensee
- Materials and devices for the hydrogen fuel cell smart house, R Golding and P Blyton
- Materials for photo electrochemical energy conversion, L R Sheppard and J Nowotny
- Hydrogen storage – status and prospects, E MacA Gray
- Visible light oxidation of organic pollutants in an aqueous environment, G J Wilson and G D Will
- Electrical conductivity and thermoelectric power of CaTiO3 at the n-p transition, T Bak, T Burg, J Nowotny and P J Blennerhassett
The issue, volume 106 numbers 1/2, (February/April 2007) is guest edited by Professor Janusz Nowotny and Dr Leigh R Sheppard of the Centre for Materials Research in Energy Conversion at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. A full list of contents may be viewed at www.ingentaconnect.com/content/maney/aac.
The special double issue is available at the discounted price of £75/US$145. To order, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advances in Applied Ceramics: Structural, Functional and Bioceramics is a showcase for innovative research in high performance ceramics. Edited by Professor Mohan Edirisinghe (University College London), the journal features original peer-reviewed research articles on the processing, fabrication, characterisation and applications of ceramics. A particular focus is the control and tailoring of micro- and nanostructure for end use requirements. Regular special issues guest-edited by leading figures in the ceramics field provide unrivalled examination of ‘hot topics’. Please visit www.maney.co.uk/journals/aac for more information.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
