Major infrared breakthrough could lead to solar power at night

Based on similar technology to night-vision goggles, Australian researchers have developed a device that can generate electricity from thermal radiation. The sun’s enormous energy may soon be harnessed in the…

Artificial muscles help robot vacuum manipulators get a grip

The robot grippers designed by Professor Stefan Seelecke and his team at Saarland University can grip and manipulate objects with complex geometries. The system can adapt almost instantaneously to changes…

Algae-powered computing

Scientists create reliable and renewable biological photovoltaic cell. Researchers have used a widespread species of blue-green algae to power a microprocessor continuously for a year – and counting – using…

Lifecycle assessments for greener and more sustainable lamp designs

Let there be a light: Using fewer resources, avoiding electronic waste, and saving energy: This is possible if the entire production chain for more sustainable lamps is investigated and levelled…

Bright, stable, and easy to recycle lighting

A low-cost and easy-to-manufacture lighting technology can be made with light-emitting electrochemical cells. Such cells are thin-film electronic and ionic devices that generate light after a low voltage is applied….

Reference-factory.H2 – electrolyzer and fuel cell production of the future

Hydrogen is a key element in the energy transition. To ensure that hydrogen can become generally established as an energy source, it must be produced at market prices, in sufficient…
