Scientists looking forth to harvest energy from car exhausts, via thermoelectric nanowires

A few days ago, we had harped about the potentially high solar efficiency of perovskite nanowires. Well, this time around, researchers at Sandia National Labs have dabbled with the procedure of controlling nanowire sizes and uniformity - and these regulated crystal states could be used in various thermoelectric applications. Now from the physical perspective, the very…


EPFL scientists successfully create perovskite nanowires that might account for better solar efficiency

If you do take interest in the burgeoning field of solar-based technological applications, chances are that you are not unfamiliar with perovskite - the touted 'wonder material' with effective light-absorbing properties. But this time around, scientists at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, have seriously notched it up a level by developing…
