If you can make a battery out of a piece of citrus, why not a crustacean? Scientists at Stanford University are taking a look at the nanostructure of crab shells to create better lithium-ion batteries.
A team of researchers at MIT has developed a new type of textured solar surface that could bring down the cost of photovoltaic technology by reducing the thickness of silicon used by more than 90% while
Forget silicon -- the next major light-absorbing material in solar cells could be carbon. Chemists at Indiana University Bloomington have figured out how to effectively create big sheets of carbon that
At the moment, electrical signals transfer information between computer chips using copper wires--a process that sucks up a lot of energy. But now researchers from IBM have developed a process that scraps
The race for the world's most efficient solar power cell is forever played out in fractions of percentages. The latest victory comes from scientists at the University of New South Wales in Australia, who
