Sensors: The Whole Picture Part Two - business sectors

Sensors: The Whole Picture Part Two - business sectors

It is meaningful to analyse sensors in terms of industries. For example, the miniaturised multi-sensor platforms of mobile phones and smart watches in the consumer electronics industry have much in common with those in the broader concepts of the Internet of Things which is largely focussed on the healthcare, energy and manufacturing sectors.

Supercapacitors replacing small batteries

Supercapacitors replacing small batteries

After a troubled past, the supercapacitor market of around $400 million is beginning to stir, partly because the majority of supercapacitors are now non-flammable, many times the reliability and life of batteries, and non-toxic.

Precision Spray Coating for Better Performing, Stable Solar Cells

Precision Spray Coating for Better Performing, Stable Solar Cells

Although perovskites are a promising alternative to the silicon used to make most of today's solar cells, new manufacturing processes are needed to make them practical for commercial production. To help fill this gap, researchers have developed a new precision spray-coating method that enables more complex perovskite solar cell designs and could be scaled up for mass production.
