Perovskite Solar Cells

A merger led by ICIQ’s Palomares group will help get better analysis about effect of changing materials in perovskite solar cells. The collaboration deepens the performance analysis in this case. Energy and Environmental Science, a peer-reviewed journal, published the report. The report provides the structure of elements of solar cells, fueling their business appeal. Perovskite is a mineral consisting mainly of calcium titanate. It is yellow, black, and brown in

Beer Packaging

Diageo, a global brewer of alcohol, has a significant collection of top class beer brands and spirits. The alcohol manufacturer has decided to discard plastic from its beer packaging. Diageo announced that in place of plastic, the firm will use 100% biodegradable and recyclable cardboard. Diageo is among the key players making efforts towards improving viability of the packaging. Back in January 2018, another big firm, Evian also declared ban

Crude Oil

Oil prices on Monday fell after OPEC (The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) along with Russia decided to battle record-high output in the U.S. Oil costs edged lower on Monday after universal benchmark Brent hit a new five-month high in the past session, yet concerns remain as worldwide supplies suffered losses. Losses were constrained due to fixing supplies globally, as production has fallen in Venezuela and Iran. The U.S.

clean energy

Scientists at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have come up with a way to provide clean hydrogen energy.  Researchers claim that they are the first hydrogen sensors that fulfill the performance demands for hydrogen powered automobiles. Nature Material recently published the findings. . The new devices comprises an optical nano sensor encapsulated in plastic. The hydrogen sensor functions on Plasmon phenomenon, which is an optical process. Plasmon takes place when


There is no second thought that science and technology has come a long way. The credit of another such example of an exceptional discovery goes to researchers at University of Central Florida. UCF researchers have developed a method to control speed of light. Not just that, the research also claims that light, if controlled, could travel backwards. The researchers used spatial light modulator a special device, to blend time and
