6G Communications Beginners Guide

6G Communications Beginners Guide

All agree that the 5G communications coming in now will be seriously inadequate around 2030 for desired medical electronics, robotics and more, not least because so much high-definition imaging will be needed instantly.

Toward Imperceptible Electronics That You Cannot See or Feel

Toward Imperceptible Electronics That You Cannot See or Feel

Transparent electronics--such as head-up displays that allow pilots to read flight data while keeping their eyes ahead of them--improve safety and allow users to access data while in transit. For healthcare applications, the electronics need to not only be cheap and straightforward to fabricate, but also sufficiently flexible to conform to skin. Silver nanowire networks meet these criteria. However, current methods of development create random nanowire alignment that's insufficient for advanced applications.

Perovskite/Silicon Tandem Solar Cells on Threshold of 30% Efficiency

Perovskite/Silicon Tandem Solar Cells on Threshold of 30% Efficiency

An HZB team has published a report in the journal Science on the development of its current world record of 29.15% efficiency for a tandem solar cell made of perovskite and silicon. The tandem cell provided stable performance for 300 hours - even without encapsulation. To accomplish this, the group headed by Prof. Steve Albrecht investigated physical processes at the interfaces to improve the transport of the charge carriers.

New Device Detects Which Hand Gestures You Want to Make

Imagine typing on a computer without a keyboard, playing a video game without a controller or driving a car without a wheel. That's one of the goals of a new device developed by engineers, that can recognize hand gestures based on electrical signals detected in the forearm. The system, which couples wearable biosensors with artificial intelligence, could one day be used to control prosthetics or to interact with almost any type of electronic device.
