More Effecient Embedded Gold And Silver Solar Panels

The new efficient broadband nanoplasmonic solar cells was produced by the researchers of Melbourne’s Swinburne University of Technology and Suntech Power Holdings. The new solar cells are made from thinner silicon base and they overcome the lost effectiveness from the thinner silicon by embedding gold and silver nanoparticles bumps into the cells. The bumps caused […]

Spray-on Antenna For Cell Phones

ChamTech Operations has announced that they reached a new Spray-on antenna for the cell phones, the spray can change any surface to an antenna once sprayed. The idea of the spray lies on the nano-capacitors which synchronize with the signals which lead to the increasing of the power of the antenna. The spray was developed […]

New Solar Cells by Cambridge University

Scientists of Cambridge University have reached a new solar cell that can harness the power of photons and turnning the photons to electrons. The solar cells are made from lead sulphide nanoparticles and pentacene, the new development could lead to better solar panels. The solar cell could increase the maximum efficiency of solar panels by […]

New Cotton Fabric That Cleans Itself Using The Sunlight

There has been many trials to reach fabrics that can clean itself, the University of California, Davis researchers developed such cotton fabrics that can get rid of pesticides by breaking down the toxic chemicals and get rid of bacteria by killing it. Some researchers used titanium dioxide, that is able to absorb ultraviolet light and oxidize the organic material […]

New Thin Solar Cells

A new material that is made from nanoparticles is able to absorb the light from any angle, which open the gate for the most thin solar cells. Professor Harry Atwater specialized in applied physics and nanomaterials at Caltech, with the help of Koray Aydin who is an assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences […]

Overcoming The Electricity Cables Waste

Armchair quantum wire (AQW) is a weaved metallic carbon nanotubes that seems like a perfect solution for saving the wasted electricity in the usual electricity cables used nowadays. The AQW can transfer electricity with nearly no waste at all. Till now the manufacture of those nanotubes has exposed to some difficulties. But the new discovery […]

Storing Sun Heat In Carbon Nanotubes

Instead of turning the sun heat to electricity, it can be stored in chemical form and kept in a heavily insulated container and used when needed. Saving the chemical materials are of course capable to be stored for long periods without losing its stored energy. That is not a new approach but the elements that has […]

Gold Nanoparticles Fighting Cancer

University of Southampton researchers led by the Physics lecturer Dr. Antonios Kanara have developed smart nanomaterials. Dr. Antonios Kanara and his colleagues proved that a small dose of gold nanoparticles could be used to control the genes that are responsible for the supply of nutrients and oxygen to different types of cancer cells. The team also found out that the […]
