Rice University calculations show double-walled nanotubes could be highly useful for solar panels and other nanoelectronics applications such as photovoltaics.
Voltage sags and interruptions can have a detrimental effect on manufacturing processes. Understanding how and why they happen is crucial.
MIT researchers have invented a way to integrate “breadboards” — flat platforms used for electronics prototyping to quickly test circuit functions and user interactions with products such as smart devices and flexible electronics.
MIT researchers have designed an electrical heat valve, which can vary the thermal conductivity on demand, and could help create controllable insulation and harvest the energy of waste heat.
Researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have created a metal battery that relies on potassium instead of Lithium-ion, which could create more energy efficient batteries for consumers.
Energy saving designs: Consider how long energy data collection is needed, how many phases and accuracy, and how the data should be collected.
North Carolina State University engineers have demonstrated a flexible device designed to harvest the heat energy from the human body to monitor health.
An MIT research team has devised a lithium metal anode that could improve the longevity and energy density of future batteries.
