Ultra-Thin Device Generates Electricity from Air Moisture

Ultra-Thin Device Generates Electricity from Air Moisture

Imagine being able to generate electricity by harnessing moisture in the air around you with just everyday items like sea salt and a piece of fabric, or even powering everyday electronics with a non-toxic battery that is as thin as paper. A team of researchers has developed a new moisture-driven electricity generation device made of a thin layer of fabric - about 0.3 millimetres in thickness - sea salt, carbon ink, and a special water-absorbing gel.

Floating Artificial Leaves Ride the Wave of Clean Fuel Production

Floating Artificial Leaves Ride the Wave of Clean Fuel Production

Researchers have developed floating 'artificial leaves' that generate clean fuels from sunlight and water, and could eventually operate on a large scale at sea. The researchers designed ultra-thin, flexible devices, which take their inspiration from photosynthesis - the process by which plants convert sunlight into food. Since the low-cost, autonomous devices are light enough to float, they could be used to generate a sustainable alternative to petrol without taking up space on land.

Large-Area Organic Solar Cells That are Low-Cost, Flexible, Efficient

Large-Area Organic Solar Cells That are Low-Cost, Flexible, Efficient

Organic solar cells, which make use of organic materials to convert sunlight into electricity, are an attractive candidate for future photovoltaics. This is due to several of their desirable features, such as their light weight, flexibility, malleability, and, most importantly, high power conversion efficiency . Such qualities make them ideal for a wide range of applications.

Funding to Research Clean Hydrogen Generation from Biomass

Funding to Research Clean Hydrogen Generation from Biomass

Funding for researchers at Cranfield University to look at new ways to generate hydrogen energy from biomass has been announced by the Government. The technology would allow biomass - organic products such as wood, grasses or used brewery hops - to be used to generate hydrogen while capturing CO2 emissions at the same time.

Colourful Solar Panels Are More Attractive

Colourful Solar Panels Are More Attractive

Solar panels aren't just for rooftops anymore - some buildings even have these power-generating structures all over their facades. But as more buildings and public spaces incorporate photovoltaic technologies, their monotonous black color could leave onlookers underwhelmed. Now, researchers have created solar panels that take on colorful hues while producing energy nearly as efficiently as traditional ones.

New Faster Charging Hydrogen Fuel Cell

New Faster Charging Hydrogen Fuel Cell

Researchers have developed a new method to improve solid-state hydrogen fuel cell charging times. Hydrogen is gaining significant attention as an efficient way to store 'green energy' from renewables such as wind and solar. Compressed gas is the most common form of hydrogen storage, however it can also be stored in a liquid or solid state.

Human-Machine Interfaces Work Underwater, Generate Their Own Power

Human-Machine Interfaces Work Underwater, Generate Their Own Power

Wearable human-machine interface devices can be used to control machines, computers, music players, and other systems. A challenge for conventional human-machine interfaces is the presence of sweat on human skin. Scientists now describe their development of a type of human-machine interface that is stretchable, inexpensive, and waterproof. The device is based on a soft magnetoelastic sensor array that converts mechanical pressure from the press of a finger into an electrical signal.

A Simple, Cheap Material for Carbon Capture, Perhaps from Tailpipes

A Simple, Cheap Material for Carbon Capture, Perhaps from Tailpipes

Carbon dioxide is the main greenhouse gas warming Earth and is emitted in large quantities in the flue gas from industrial and power plants. A new method for removing CO2 from these flue gases involves piping the emissions through a porous material based on the chemical melamine. DETA, a chemical bound inside the porous melamine, grabs CO2 and removes it from the gas, with nitrogen vented to the atmosphere.
