An international research team has developed a new type of solar cell that can both withstand environmental hazards and has power conversion efficiency of 26.7%.
Researchers have improved the performance and safety of lithium-ion batteries, increasing not only the battery's voltage delivery but also its ability to suppress dangerous conditions.
Scientists have revealed how the thermoelectric effect, or converting temperature differences into electricity, can be optimally used to power small, flexible devices.
Researchers have detailed the use of soft and flexible materials to ultrasonically charge bioelectronic implants, reducing the need for surgical treatment.
Researchers made a tweak to the part of the battery called the separator, so that it slows down the flow of energy (and thus heat) that builds up inside the battery when it short circuits.
Organic electrode materials are considered to be extremely promising materials for sustainable batteries with high power capabilities.
Russian researchers have described a way to increase the sensitivity of biological detectors (biosensors) to the point where they can be used in mobile and wearable devices.
Inverted perovskite solar cells can now achieve efficiencies close to that of their more conventional counterparts.
Researchers have developed a new type of battery that combines negative capacitance and negative resistance within the same cell, allowing the cell to self-charge without losing energy.
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.
