Researchers develop graphene-enhanced biophotovoltaic technology

Researchers develop graphene-enhanced biophotovoltaic technology

Existing photovoltaic technology is not fully capable of realizing the promise of sustainable solar energy. Commercial and emerging photovoltaic technologies require energy-intensive extracting and manufacturing processes and often require metals like tin that generate social conflict and environmental harm with their mining. Slave and child labor, along with rampant environmental destruction and pollution are widespread in the tin mining industry, which in some places is even controlled by militias to fund wars.

Wearable measures cortisol in sweat

Wearable measures cortisol in sweat

The hormone cortisol rises and falls naturally throughout the day and can spike in response to stress, but current methods for measuring cortisol levels require waiting several days for results from a lab. By the time a person learns the results of a cortisol test - which may inform treatment for certain medical conditions - it is likely different from when the test was taken.

A fresh way to research your market opportunities

Conducting market research on why companies want your product is usually a necessary step for successful commercialization. It is even more important when new technologies are developed that achieve things that were not possible before: Often the applications for the technology turn out to be very different from those intended by the creator.
