Major Leap for Stable High-Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells

Major Leap for Stable High-Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells

Solar cells manufactured from materials known as perovskites are catching up with the efficiency of traditional silicon-based solar cells. At the same time, they have advantages of low cost and short energy payback time. However, such solar cells have problems with stability - something that researchers have now managed to solve.

Accelerating Commercialisation of Soft and Stretchable Electronics

Accelerating Commercialisation of Soft and Stretchable Electronics

The next generation of robotic technology will produce soft machines and robots that are safe and comfortable for direct physical interaction with humans and for use in fragile environments. Unlike rigid electronics, soft and stretchable electronics can be used to create wearable technologies and implantable electronics where safe physical contact with biological tissue and other delicate materials is essential.

Print, Recycle, Repeat: a Biodegradable Printed Circuit

Print, Recycle, Repeat: a Biodegradable Printed Circuit

Some experts predict that our e-waste problem will only get worse over time, because most electronics on the market today are designed for portability, not recyclability. Tablets and readers, for example, are assembled by gluing circuits, chips, and hard drives to thin layers of plastic, which must be melted to extract precious metals like copper and gold. Burning plastic releases toxic gases into the atmosphere, and electronics wasting away in landfill often contain harmful materials like mercury, lead, and beryllium.

Sensor Could Help Patients Stay on Top of Their Meds

Lithium can alleviate the symptoms of bipolar disorder and depression — if taken in just the right amount. Too little won't work, while too much can bring on dangerous side effects. To precisely monitor the amount of this medication in the body, patients must undergo invasive blood tests. But now, scientists report the invention of a tiny sensor that detects lithium levels from sweat on the surface of a fingertip in as little as 30 seconds, without a trip to the clinic.
