Employing some of the world's most powerful supercomputers, scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have shown that mismatched alloys are a good match for the future development of high performance thermoelectric devices. Thermoelectrics hold enormous potential for green energy production because of their ability to convert heat into electricity.
WBTshowcase announced today that sci-fi think tank founder Arlan Andrews, Sr. P.E. will join seven fellow members of SIGMA on a panel session titled 'The World's Best Technologies - 2010 and Beyond' on Wednesday, March 17th at WBT2010.
Forscher des Paul-Drude-Instituts fuer Festkoerperelektronik entwickeln gemeinsam mit der Industrie und anderen Forschungsinstituten im Rahmen eines EU-Projektes weisse Leuchtdioden (LEDs), die auf Nanosaeulen basieren. Dadurch koennte die Produktion von energiesparenden weissen LEDs deutlich billiger werden.
At the fifth DFG-NSF Research Conference approximately 70 high-ranking German and American physics and chemistry researchers discussed important issues of nanotechnology with colleagues from the fields of materials science, materials engineering and life sciences.
Large-area, organic and printed electronics - complementing traditional silicon-based microelectronics - is at the threshold of mass production, promising a host of thin and lightweight, flexible and robust products.
