Electrical engineers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have created the fastest and most responsive flexible silicon phototransistor that's ever been made.
Researchers have developed a new lithium-air battery, in order to create a battery that works efficiently and also has a tolerance for water.
What’s an electric eel’s secret weapon? It’s curling up.
A recent study revealed that Africa's urban solid waste could be used to generate a valuable source of electricity, which can be useful to millions of households.
Mushrooms aren't just good to eat. It turns out that they may also be useful for creating batteries. Scientists have found that portabella mushrooms may stop cell phone batteries from degrading over time.
There may now be a cure for seasickness. Scientists are developing a new treatment that may help those with motion sickness.
Graphene is the super material of the future. Now, though, researchers have found a way to embed metallic nanoparticles in graphene and turn the material into a useful catalyst for fuel cells and other applications.
Forty-four years since the experiment first took place, a new movie on the extremely controversial study hits the big screen.
We may just be able to control lightning. Scientists have discovered a way to guide electric discharges and even steer them around obstacles by using lasers.
New findings published in the Journal of Biological Rhythms examined how excessive use of electricity and artificial light ultimately influenced adequate rest.
The electric eel can deliver enough of a shock to knock down a full-grown horse. Now, scientists have discovered that this eel actually has an electroshock system that is actually similar to that of a Taser.
