May 2, 2017 — You cannot get far today with electric cars. One reason is that the batteries require a lot of space. Scientists are stacking large cells on top of one another. This provides vehicles with more ... read more

May 2, 2017 — Solar cells based on perovskites reach high efficiencies: they convert more than 20 percent of the incident light directly into usable power. On their search for underlying physical mechanisms, ... read more

Apr. 29, 2017 — Researchers have created a new process for producing hydrogen from ammonia with rapid initiation that requires no external heat source, giving hope for the increased global use of hydrogen as an ... read more

Apr. 26, 2017 — Scientists show how light affects perovskite film formation in solar cells, which is a critical factor in using them for cost-effective and energy-efficient ... read more

In-Flight, on-Demand Hydrogen Production Could Mean 'Greener' Aircraft

Apr. 24, 2017 — Technion researchers have a developed safe and efficient way to produce hydrogen on board a plane in flight. Using aluminum particles and (fresh or waste), the technology could one day help meet ... read more

New Discovery Could Aid in Detecting Nuclear Threats

Apr. 21, 2017 — A new way to detect nuclear materials has been developed by researchers. Made of graphene and carbon nanotubes, the researchers' detector far outpaces any existing one in its ultrasensitivity to ... read more

Hazardous Asteroid Effects Ranked from Least to Most Destructive

Apr. 19, 2017 — If an asteroid struck Earth, which of its effects -- scorching heat, flying debris, towering tsunamis -- would claim the most lives? A new study has the answer: violent winds and shock waves are the ... read more

A Better Life in the Outback: Improving Living Standards in the Australian Desert Region

Apr. 19, 2017 — People who live in desert regions are perceived as living in hardship and isolation and surviving largely due to subsidies from the 'mainstream' economy. New research suggests that for some ... read more

Apr. 19, 2017 — The mechanism behind oil synthesis within microalgae cells has now been revealed by a research team. This discovery could contribute to the development of biofuels, they ... read more
