Large current to flow with zero resistance

How can one increase the maximum current which can flow in a superconductor without any resistance? Counter-intuitively the answer in some circumstances is to increase the dissipation (i.e. the energy losses) in the superconductor.

Mismatched alloys are a good match for thermoelectics

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.

Weisses LED Licht aus Nanopfeilern

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.
