Project pioneers use of silicon-germanium for space electronics applications

A five-year project led by the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a novel approach to space electronics that could change how space vehicles and instruments are designed. The new capabilities are based on silicon-germanium technology, which can produce electronics that are highly resistant to both wide temperature variations and space radiation.

Manufacturing 'made to measure' atomic-scale electrodes

Thanks to collaborative work between scientists in Donostia-San Sebastian and the University of Kiel (Germany) it has been shown that it is possible to determine and control the number of atoms in contact between a molecule and a metal electrode of copper, at the same time as the electric current passing through the union being recorded.

Green way to generate heat and electricity with use of fuel cells

The generation of electricity and heat with no pollution and with considerably less emission of the greenhouse gas CO2 sounds too good to be true. However, it is possible with the so-called SOFC fuel cells, which Risoe has been conducting research into for over 20 years. The technology is now on its way to reach Danish and international companies including consumers.
