The goose bump sensor: A step toward direct detection of human emotional states
Can emotional states be measured quantitatively, and if so what would advertising, manufacturing and social media companies do with that data? Imagine a world in which a consumer's real-time physical and ...
Researchers use aluminum nanostructures for photorealistic printing of plasmonic color palettes
A new way to make sheets of graphene
Graphene's promise as a material for new kinds of electronic devices, among other uses, has led researchers around the world to study the material in search of new applications. But one of the biggest limitations ...
Solar panels as inexpensive as paint? It's possible due to new research
(Phys.org) —Most Americans want the U.S. to place more emphasis on developing solar power, recent polls suggest. A major impediment, however, is the cost to manufacture, install and maintain solar panels. ...
New solar-cell design based on dots and wires
Using exotic particles called quantum dots as the basis for a photovoltaic cell is not a new idea, but attempts to make such devices have not yet achieved sufficiently high efficiency in converting sunlight ...
Researchers improve efficiency of low-cost solar cells
Researchers find stem cells remember prior substrates
New technique could mean super thin, strong graphene-based circuits
(Phys.org)—Integrated circuits, which are in everything from coffeemakers to computers and are patterned from perfectly crystalline silicon, are quite thin—but Cornell researchers think they can push ...
