UK National Highways Will be Trialling the Use of Graphene

National Highways will be trialling the use of graphene - a material only one atom thick - in its road surfacing to see if it prolongs its lifespan. If successful, using this high-tech product could see the operational life of key road features extended by a number of  years, reducing the frequency of roadworks and making journeys for road users smoother and more reliable.

How Chlorine Stabilizes Next-Gen Solar Cells

How Chlorine Stabilizes Next-Gen Solar Cells

A team of researchers have imaged the atoms at the surface of the light-absorbing layer in a new type of next-generation solar cells, made from a crystal material called metal-halide perovskite. Their findings have solved a long-standing mystery in the field of solar power technology, showing how power-boosting and stability-enhancing chlorine is incorporated into the perovskite material.

Carbon Capture & Utilization Can Enable Low-Carbon Concrete Production

Carbon Capture & Utilization Can Enable Low-Carbon Concrete Production

Concrete is the second most consumed substance on the planet, trailing only potable water. Cement production - an essential ingredient for concrete - alone contributes to 7% of global anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. As the world will see the building stock double in size by 2050, pressure for the cement industry to decarbonize has risen swiftly.

Stretching the Capacity of Flexible Energy Storage

Stretching the Capacity of Flexible Energy Storage

Some electronics can bend, twist and stretch in wearable displays, biomedical applications and soft robots. While these devices' circuits have become increasingly pliable, the batteries and supercapacitors that power them are still rigid. Now, researcher report a flexible supercapacitor with electrodes made of wrinkled titanium carbide — a type of MXene nanomaterial — that maintained its ability to store and release electronic charges after repetitive stretching.

First Railway Station Upgrade in Europe to Use Photovoltaic Film

At only 3mm thick and 3kg per m2 the flexible solar panels are highly advanced from traditional 'glass like' panels and require no additional weight support. With an aesthetic finish that compliments the architectural design, the flexible panels are shatterproof and have a self-cleaning Teflon like top sheet- requiring no ongoing maintenance. The advanced technology also generates a higher energy yield in shadow and shading conditions.
