Highly Compact Battery Charger for Electric Bicycles and Scooters

E-mobility shapes the life of more and more people, and e-bikes and e-scooters play an essential role in it. The employed rechargeable batteries become smaller and lighter, the efficiency of…

Plumbing the depths: Defect distribution in ion-implanted SiC diodes

Researchers reveal that aluminum implantation doping in p-type bipolar semiconductors creates defects many layers deeper than the implantation site. Silicon carbide (SiC) unipolar semiconductors are in wide commercial use, but…

Newly developed compound may enable sustainable, cost-effective, large-scale energy storage

To produce a cost-effective redox flow battery, researchers based at the South China University of Technology have synthesized a molecular compound that serves as a low-cost electrolyte, enabling a stable…

New sensor detects ever smaller nanoparticles

Novel optical resonator can track the movement of nanoparticles in space. Conventional microscopes produce enlarged images of small structures or objects with the help of light. Nanoparticles, however, are so…

Making Aircraft Fuel From Sunlight and Air

Scientists at ETH Zurich have built a plant that can produce carbon-neutral liquid fuels from sunlight and air. The next goal will be to take this technology to industrial scale…

Turning plastic grocery bags into sustainable fuel

Using pyrolysis, dewaxing catalyst to upcycle plastic waste into fuel source. More than 300 million tons of plastic waste are produced annually, which causes serious environmental issues because of plastic’s…

Aircraft can get higher and greener from doped fuels

UBCO researchers cook up jet fuel with graphene nanomaterials. The goal of creating a cleaner fuel for aircraft engines is creating a spark at UBC Okanagan. A team of researchers…

They’ll lead the robots out

Why when walking in the city we do not enter blind alleys, or at least it happens to us very rarely, rather only when we lose our train of thought?…

Engineers invent ultra-fast manufacturing technology, eliminating need for polymer binders

A team of engineers at the University of South Florida has invented new technology that could forever change the manufacturing of wearable, electronic sensors. They’ve figured out a way to…

To convert heat into electricity

Scientists developed an efficient generator… Thermoelectric generator of new generation is ten times more efficient than its analogues. Researchers from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) in collaboration…
