Flexible Membrane from Wood Generates Energy from Body Heat

Scientists have made a flexible membrane from a wooden piece. This produces electrical energy same as that runs in a human body. Charged channel walls produce this energy, with specific properties of natural nanostructures of wood. University of Maryland, US conducted the research. Owing to the advancement in technology, scientists succeeded in producing voltage effectively using minute temperature difference. Trees have channels to circulate water to the leaves and the

Seawater

In light of recent technological developments and industrialization, there is a high demand for sustainable sources of energy. Splitting hydrogen and oxygen from water can serve as one such excellent source for sustainable energy. However, the conventional methods of water splitting are highly expensive and led to the depletion of precious energy sources. Stanford scientists have developed a new technique of producing hydrogen fuel using solar energy. Coating Anode with

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

UCF

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

artificial intelligence

Advent of artificial intelligence (AI) has led to development of machines and systems that supersede human brains. It has opened new doors for data management and analysis with the help of precise statistical data. Researchers are now working on diversifying the applications of AI. The healthcare industry serves as major platform for the adoption and development of AI. However, collecting and analyzing extensive amount of patient data is a challenge
