Japanese researchers have developed an energy-harvesting device that can convert environmental waste heat (such as that lost from the human body) into electricity.
Cybernet's medical-grade computers have always featured a housing with antimicrobial properties baked directly into the resin and now offer a fully antimicrobial touch glass as well, so the entire device is 100% protected against the formation of bacteria.
Researchers have developed a solar cell, made of the semiconductors perovskite and silicon, that converts 29.15% of the incident light into electrical energy — believed to be a world record.
Scientists have developed a nonflammable electrolyte for potassium and potassium-ion batteries, for applications in next-generation energy-storage systems beyond lithium technology.
Researchers are improving the performance of lithium–air batteries, bringing us closer to electric cars that can use oxygen to run longer before they need to recharge.
The findings have the potential to boost the photovoltaics and photodetector fields, and could improve the efficiency of solar cells to up to 46%.
MORNSUN has released the PV150-29Bxx converter series for 150 W 250–1500 VDC applications. The series features 4 kVAC isolation with a wide-input 250–1500 VDC voltage range, with efficiencies of up to 84% @ 800 VDC input.
Traco Power's THN 15 series high-performance 15 W DC/DC converters are enclosed in a shielded 1″ x 1″ x 0.4″ metal package. The design provides a fully integrated EN 55032 class A filter and no-load power consumption of 96–336 mW.
Nova Electric's NGL130W-Series Rugged Pure Sinewave DC-AC/DC Inverters are specifically designed for harsh-environment applications wherever standard utility-like power is needed at 50, 60 or 400 Hz.
Traco Power's TEL 10WI series is a range of isolated 10 W converters that come in an ultracompact DIP-16 metal package. The low-power DC/DC converters are designed to provide maximum miniaturisation without sacrificing high efficiency.
ITECH's IT8600 series programmable combined AC/DC electronic load has a power rating of 1800, 3600 and 5400 W; a frequency range of 45–450 Hz; a voltage range of 15 V–260 Vrms and 50 V–420 Vrms; and a current range of 20, 40 and 60 Arms.
Scientists have developed a method to analyse which pairs of materials in next-generation perovskite solar cells will harvest the most energy.
NGK INSULATORS and BASF New Business have entered into a joint development agreement to develop the next generation of sodium‒sulfur batteries.
