Printable battery tech promises to empower IoT and wearables

This heart-shaped battery printed onto a glass cup is capable of powering an LED

Researchers have created printable solid-state batteries that can be printed in any conceivable shape and can be seamlessly embedded into a variety of surfaces. Conventional Li-on batteries come in set shapes and sizes because of the way they’re constructed. You need separator membranes to prevent the electrodes

Solar battery breaks performance milestone

Prototype aqueous solar flow battery under development at The Ohio State University. The square piece of solar cell (center) is red, because the researchers are using a red dye to tune the wavelength of light it absorbs and converts to electrons

After debuting the world’s first solar air battery last fall, researchers at The Ohio State University have now reached a new milestone. In the Journal of the American Chemical Society, they report that their patent-pending design—which combines a solar cell and a battery into a single device—now achieves

Ethylene production via sunlight offers great promise

NREL scientist Jianping Yu holds a petri dish of cyanobacteria culture being grown in his lab. He is working to cultivate various genetically engineered strains to promote ethylene production

Here's the future of ethylene production as Dr. Jianping Yu sees it. "We envision some farms in the field that cover many acres. We will have cyanobacteria harvesting sunlight and C02 and then produce ethylene or ethylene derivatives," said Yu, a research scientist in the Photobiology Group at the
