Researchers have developed an economically viable system that can extract high-purity lithium from sea water, which could be used to power electric vehicles.
The USB Power Delivery (USB PD) Revision 3.1 specification enables the delivery of up to 240 W of power over the USB Type-C cable and connector.
Researchers are improving the long-term reliability of perovskite solar cells with a so-called 'molecular glue' that keeps a key interface inside the cells from degrading.
Xerotech announced that it will qualify one of its core proprietary battery safety technologies for space applications in conjunction with the European Space Agency.
Researchers have used tiny smart devices known as spin-torque oscillators to harvest and convert wireless radio frequencies into energy to power small electronics.
Researchers have developed an innovative use of the nanomaterial boron nitride nanotubes (BNNT) to improve the performance of Li–S batteries.
The 2D films used in some perovskite solar cells closely resemble a sandwich — with two layers of the same type (the bread) surrounding one central, contrasting layer (the filling).
Researchers have produced perovskite solar modules with minimal scaling loss, combining laser-based series interconnections with vacuum processing of all layers of the solar cell.
Singlet fission and tandem solar cells — two ways to generate solar power more efficiently — also help to lower operating temperatures and keep devices running for longer.
UK researchers have been working with British company Johnson Matthey to create stable and practical electrolytes for lithium–oxygen (Li–O2) batteries.
A synthetic approach that improves absorber layers in perovskite solar cells could help them achieve their full potential, researchers have found.
Scientists from the Harbin Institute of Technology have developed a small, flexible device that can convert heat emitted from human skin to electrical power.
The WAF series is a compact and ruggedised range of DC/DC converters from Helios Power Solutions, available in 150 and 300 W output power for harsh industrial environments.
The graphene aluminium-ion batteries are said to be faster-charging, more sustainable and longer-lived than lithium-ion batteries.
Researchers have used carbon dots, created from human hair waste, to create a kind of 'armour' to improve the performance of cutting-edge solar technology.
