Glass transistor discovery promises faster energy-saving electronic devices November 17, 2014 Glass transistor discovery promises faster energy-saving electronic devices Researchers from the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton have demonstrated a way that glass can be manipulated to create electronic devices that will be smaller, faster and consume less power. Read more Swiss production project pushes solar cell performance envelope November 17, 2014 Swiss production project pushes solar cell performance envelope A pilot plant for the production of high efficiency heterojunction (HJT) solar cells at Meyer Burger Research AG in Hauterive, Neuchâtel, Switzerland has opened and the plant will aim to further optimize an innovative cell coating process to industrial manufacturing standards. Read more MegaChips and Imec collaborate on ultra-low power short-range radio for IoT November 17, 2014 MegaChips and Imec collaborate on ultra-low power short-range radio for IoT Nanoelectronics research center imec/Holst Centre and MegaChips have signed a strategic partnership for joint R&D on ultra-low power (ULP) short-range radio technology for smart homes and buildings. Read more Interlaced crystal discovery promised power generation efficiency gains November 17, 2014 Interlaced crystal discovery promised power generation efficiency gains Researchers from Vanderbilt University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) claim to discovered a new form of crystalline order that simultaneously exhibits both crystal and polycrystalline properties.  The 'interlaced crystals' are ideal for thermoelectric applications that turn heat into electricity. ... Read more AMP consortium reveals first standards for distributed power November 12, 2014 AMP consortium reveals first standards for distributed power The Architects of Modern Power (AMP) consortium has revealed the organization's first standards aimed at establishing common mechanical and electrical specifications for the development of advanced power conversion technology for distributed power systems. Read more Semiconducting polymers discovery claims record solar cell efficiency November 11, 2014 Semiconducting polymers discovery claims record solar cell efficiency Researchers from North Carolina State University and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have found that temperature-controlled aggregation in a family of new semiconducting polymers is the key to mass producing efficient organic solar cells more cheaply. Read more Tiny batteries from billions of nanopores November 11, 2014 Tiny batteries from billions of nanopores Researchers at the University of Maryland have invented a single tiny structure that includes all the components of a battery that they say could bring about the ultimate miniaturization of energy storage components. Read more Smart battery charges up for IoT November 10, 2014 Smart battery charges up for IoT After several years chasing WiFi sockets in consumer gadgets, Roel Peeters got another idea. Sell a $35 smart, networked battery that consumers can plug into millions of existing smoke alarms. Read more Supercapacitor innovation promises panel-powered cars in five years November 10, 2014 Supercapacitor innovation promises panel-powered cars in five years A team of researchers at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) have developed lightweight supercapacitors that can be combined with regular batteries to boost the power of an electric car by using the car's body panels. Read more Can controlling nano-level energy make mobile batteries last longer? November 07, 2014 Can controlling nano-level energy make mobile batteries last longer? Researchers at University of Luxembourg claim to have discovered how electronic devices waste a lot of energy by producing useless heat and how this waste could be reduced by controlling energy flows at a molecular level.
