Engineers have taken a closer look at an emerging family of solar-absorbing materials. Now, they've found that these new materials could pave the way for cheaper and more efficient solar panels and LEDs.
Blue-ray disks may be more useful than you might have thought. Scientists have discovered that Blue-ray disks may actually improve the performance of solar cells, which suggests a second use for unwanted disks.
Energy drinks have no place in a child's diet, according to a new study. More than 40 percent of reports about energy drinks to U.S. poison control centers involved children younger than six with some suffering serious cardiac and neurological symptoms.
Scientists may have made a breakthrough when it comes to absorbing and converting heat.
Scientists continue to search for ways to collect power for sustainable energy. Now, they've created a chin strap that can actually harvest energy from the jaw movements associated with chewing, which may just be able to power small devices in the future.
Could you imagine a row of solar panels that also function as windows? Scientists may just have developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while still allowing people to see outside.
Superman can fly, leap over buildings, and accomplish feats that are, well, pretty superhuman. Yet this superhero doesn't just defy logic with his spectacular feats; he also defies the fundamental physics law of the conservation of energy.
Water is used around the world to produce electricity. Yet there may not be enough water in the world in order to meet demand by 2040, according to a new study.
Scientists may have found a new way to harness the vast amounts of wasted excess heat that are generated by industrial processes and electric power plants.
Creating matter from light? It sounds like something out of science fiction, right? Well scientists have managed to take something that seems improbable and devise an experiment to make it possible.
There's a new, environmentally friendly solar cell that uses tin instead of lead perovskite in order to harvest light. The low-cost solar cell could potentially be a breakthrough for solar energy.
