Breaking barriers in solar energy
Stop for a moment and imagine an efficient highway system. No need to jockey for position, no choke-point merging from three lanes into one, no long idles at ill-timed traffic lights, no rolling roadblocks as the motorist ahead of you prepares for a turn that is still five miles away. Regardless of the number of cars, you would know what smooth sailing looks and feels like. That's the life solid-state researchers want for electrons as they work to capture the sun's extraordinary energy and convert it into electricity.
Inductive wireless upgrade kit
MAGMENT announces the most cost-effective solution to install wireless charging pads by retrofitting existing plug-in charging stations with a concrete on-ground casing and configuring it as a virtual cable, interoperable with pick-up coils compliant with SAE 2954/IEC 61980 standards. Transmission power is up to 22 kW with efficiencies up to 95%.
Energy for medical technology: from fitness trackers to insulin pumps
For some years now, medical technology has been among the sectors generating the most patent applications. Innovations and ongoing development for ever more application are increasingly dependent on an efficient energy supply that is precisely tailored to the individual requirements.
Thermal stable perovskite solar cell
The thermal stability was tested over a period of 3.000 hours. After this thermal stress test, the cell performance showed still 93% of the initial performance.
Brain Corp, established in 2009 and located in California, provides software that enables companies to easily autonomous their robots or industrial vehicles (not passenger cars).
