Clean energy 'bio batteries' come a step closer

These bacteria can generate electricity in the right environment

A report published by the University of East Anglia shows how electrons hop across otherwise electrically insulating areas of bacterial proteins, and that the rate of electrical transfer is dependent on the orientation and proximity of electrically conductive ‘stepping stones’. It is hoped that

Osram LEDs achieve record-breaking efficacies in green spectral range

Record-breaking efficacy of >200 lm/W achieved with a green full conversion phosphor solution

The “Hi-Q-LED” project funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has made pioneering advances with green LEDs, greatly diminishing what is known as the “green gap” phenomenon – the significant drop in efficacy in the green spectral range. The result is a green-emitting

Nanoparticle-based material turns up the heat on concentrated solar power

A new coating material developed by UCSD researchers could help make concentrated solar power (CSP) plants more efficient

The key factor when it comes to solar power plant efficiency – be they of the photovoltaic or concentrated solar power (CSP) variety – is the amount of light that can be captured by the light-absorbing material and converted into electricity or heat. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego

Computational model predicts superconductivity

The 15 boxes in this image show the simulated intensity of spin excitations in 15 iron-based materials, including iron compounds that are high-temperature superconductors (images d–h). The x axis shows the momentum of the spin excitation in selected locations of 3D space, and the y axis shows the energy measured in electron volts (eV). The color code indicates the intensity of spin excitations with a given energy and momentum

Researchers studying iron-based superconductors are combining novel electronic structure algorithms with the high-performance computing power of the U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE)’s Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to predict spin dynamics, or the ways electrons orient and correlate
