One of the most promising types of solar cells has a few drawbacks. A scientist at Michigan Technological University may have overcome one of them.
(Phys.org) —In 1900, about 1.6 billion people lived on Earth. Just a few generations later, over four times as many of us share the planet.
(Phys.org) —For decades, electronic devices have been getting smaller, and smaller, and smaller. It's now possible—even routine—to place millions of transistors on a single silicon chip.
(Phys.org) —Lithium ion batteries are at the energetic heart of almost all things tech, from cell phones to tablets to electric vehicles. That's because they are a proven technology, light, long-lasting and powerful. But ...
OK, so maybe you aren't interested in making your own toys, cellphone cases, or glow-in-the-dark Christmas decorations. How about a brake drum?
