(University of Bath) Researchers at the University of Bath have developed a revolutionary desalination process that has the potential to be operated in mobile, solar-powered units.
(Kanazawa University) Kanazawa University researchers used a novel technique to deposit TiO2 layers for efficient perovskite solar cells (PSCs). The inkjet-deposited layers applied at an angle of 45°, without the need for a vacuum, were uniform and their thickness could be controlled by manipulating coating times. The resulting PSCs had an efficiency of 13.19%, making the technique promising as a simple, low-cost method that could be easily scaled-up for commercial production of efficient PSCs.
Recent climate models project that a doubling of atmospheric CO2 above pre-industrial levels could cause temperatures to soar far above previous estimates. A warming earth, researchers now say, will lead to a loss of clouds, allowing more solar energy to…
A team of Johns Hopkins researchers have identified an ultra-absorbent new material that can soak up almost 9 liters of water from thin air every day.
The post Researchers Develop Ultra-Absorbent Device That Can Pull Record Amounts of Water Out of Thin Air appeared first on Good News Network.
(Lancaster University) Engineers have developed a new scanning technique inspired by the natural world that can detect corroding metals in oil and gas pipelines.By mimicking how bats use differing wavelengths of ultrasound to detect objects, hunt, and avoid predators, engineers have developed a new system that combines two separate types of radiation, fast neutrons and gamma rays, to detect corrosion — a major cause of pipeline leaks.
A new study suggests that significant early childhood exposure to traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) is associated with structural changes in the brain at the age of 12.
Did the chicks of dinosaurs from the group oviraptorid hatch from their eggs at the same time? This question can be answered by the length and arrangement of the embryo’s bones, which provide information about the stage of development. But how do you look inside fossilized dinosaur eggs?
Research finds that Arctic permafrost thawed in the past as well when there was no sea ice, leading to global temperature rise
