Researchers at SRI International have found an innovative design for organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) that makes use of cavities to enhance their luminosity and energy efficiency. The device, called a COLED (where the ‘c’ stands for ‘cavity’) was designed by Dr. Yijian Shi and employs a regular pattern of cavities, implementing a structure that generates [...]
Researchers at the Ohio University have developed an efficient way of producing hydrogen from urine – a feat that could not only fuel the cars of the future, but could also help clean up municipal wastewater. Using hydrogen to power cars has become an increasingly attractive transportation fuel, as the only emission produced is water [...]
While the military might be the United States biggest consumer of oil, the Pentagon is looking for solutions to reduce this fossil fuels dependence which will mean more money saved. Thus, on each liter of fuel saved, the convoys that carrying oil will be lower with 6400 soldiers, therefore, less accidents and more lives saved [...]
This new nanogenerator that can convert the energy of body movements into electricity was developed by the scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology. The obtained energy can be used to power a broad range of electronic devices such iPods and cellphones without using batteries.
Scientists have a possible solution for the energy crisis that threatens the world. After a century of research, experts are ready to resolve one of the biggest problem in physics – the exploitation of nuclear power. U.S. researchers want to create in a few months in laboratory, an artificial sun. The researchers said that: “Creating [...]
