Several new green patent complaints were filed in January and February in the areas of advanced batteries, waste-to-energy feedstocks, energy-efficient exercise... Read More »
To study matter on increasingly smaller scales, scientists need faster light. The speed of light is constant, of course, but "faster" here refers to the... Read More »
Though it's no shark, having a robot on another planet with a laser attached to its "head" is still pretty cool. The Rover's "ChemCam,"... Read More »
Cleanliness may be next to godliness, but it's also relevant for solar panel efficiency. "A dirty solar panel can reduce its power capabilities by up to 30... Read More »
Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are the latest craze in consumer electronics, but thats set to change with new research from Umeå University in Sweden... Read More »
A group of Clemson University researchers was unsatisfied with the limited properties of modern fiber optic cables. “We have used a highly purified version of... Read More »
The National Research Council demands a photonics revolution... and so it shall be! Okay, so that demand may have been more of a recommendation. Who cares? It’s ... Read More »
In a decidedly bond-villain esque move, researchers have used a thin sliver of diamond to create one of the most powerful and refined X-ray lasers to date. Described... Read More »
Superman has to be hating himself about now. Researchers and engineers have already mimicked his flight, laser vision, and super strength, now they’re close to... Read More »
Researchers from the University of Toronto have created the world’s most efficient colloidal quantum dot  (CQD) solar cells ever. The researchers’... Read More »
Plastic electronics: they hold the promise of cheap mass-produced LEDs and solar cells, but they have a flaw: charge traps. Researchers from the Georgia Institute of... Read More »
The inspiration behind NASA scientist’s quest to build a highly specialized X-ray mirror comes from an unusual source: a roll of Scotch® tape. The rounded... Read More »
Late on the night of July 20th, the laser system of the Berkeley Lab Laser Accelerator (BELLA), delivered a petawatt of power in a pulse just 40 femtoseconds long. In ... Read More »
Photovoltaics are the ultimate source of clean and renewable energy, but today’s technologies utilize relatively scarce and expensive semiconductors that are... Read More »
An international research team at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory has created 3D images of fragile but biologically important molecules inside protein... Read More »
Vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers offer a number of advantages in the manufacturing process over their horizontal-cavity brethren. In particular, vertical... Read More »
When UCLA researcher Yang Yang looks out a window, he sees opportunity. Yang's focus isn't on what's beyond the window, but the window itself --... Read More »
Space age imaging equipment, up until now developed and used by NASA to study distant stars, will soon be a critical tool of the operating room. The infrared camera... Read More »
Researchers for North Carolina State University and ImagineOptix Corporation have developed a new technique for polarizing light that promises smaller, more efficient ... Read More »
University of Utah physicists have invented a new "spintronic" organic light-emitting diode or spin OLED that promises brighter, cheaper, and more efficient ... Read More »
