Normally an insulator, diamond becomes a metallic conductor when subjected to large strain in a theoretical model, which could improve solar cells, quantum sensors, optical devices and more.
An atomic mechanism that makes some thermoelectric materials efficient near high-temperature phase transition could help unlock better options for technologies reliant on transforming heat into electricity.
Heat-harnessing solar cells that reflect 99% of the energy they can’t convert to electricity could help bring down the price of storing renewable energy as heat and improve overall energy efficiency.
