Self-sustaining bacteria-fueled power cell

Instead of oil, coal, or even solar energy, self-sustaining bacterial fuel cells may power the future.
23 Dec

Scientists build bacteria-powered battery on single sheet of paper

nstead of ordering batteries by the pack, we might get them by the ream in the future.
29 Jun

Trapped electrons to blame for lack of battery efficiency

Research has the potential to create more efficient batteries by shedding light on the cause of one of their biggest problems -- a "traffic jam" of ions that slows down their charging and discharging process.

Origami ninja star inspires battery design

A new disposable battery that folds like an origami ninja star could power biosensors and other small devices for use in challenging field conditions.
18 Apr

Bacteria-powered solar panel generates clean energy

Researchers have taken the next step in the evolution of bacteria-powered energy and have connected nine biological-solar (bio-solar) cells into a bio-solar panel.

A new material for transparent electronics

The performance of solar cells, flat panel displays, and other electronics are limited by today's materials. A new material, created by modifying a transparent insulating oxide, replacing up to 25 percent of the lanthanum ions in the host material with strontium ions, offers considerable promise.

Flexible barrier technologies: a brief review of technology options

Back in 2014, we witnessed the launch of the first displays deposited on flexible substrates, and the first efforts to encapsulate them. There are significant differences in the encapsulation techniques utilized by each of the companies commercializing flexible electronics. These differences signify the variety of technologies available, in terms of deposition as well as material options for the barrier films, some of which are discussed in this article
