Scientists, at New Mexico-based Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), have developed the technology that could potentially turn any window into a power source.

Colorless, non-toxic luminescent solar concentrator could turn any window into a power source

Scientists, at New Mexico-based Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), have developed the technology that could potentially turn any window into a power source. For the very first time, researchers have managed to build large-scale luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) that, unlike their predecessors, are colorless, non-toxic and incredibly efficient. A type of building-integrated photovoltaic material, the device…


Silicene Transistor-1

Scientists develop the world’s thinnest transistor using silicene, a close kin of graphene

While the entire world is extolling graphene as a wonder material, scientists, working at the University of Texas at Austin, have developed the world's first silicene-based transistor. Identified through computer models, almost a decade before graphene was first isolated, silicene is a one-atom-thick allotrope of silicon. Despite its impressive electrical properties, silicene is widely believed to be…


Reconfigurable Electronic Circuits-1

Scientists work towards developing self-repairing, reconfigurable electronic circuits

Scientist, working at Switzerland's École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne(EPFL), have laid the groundwork for advanced, reconfigurable and self-repairing electronic circuits. Capable of reorganizing its internal pathways under the application of external stimuli, these circuits represent the future of adaptable electronics. The technology could likely give birth to multi-tasking microchips that can switch functions by altering…
