Floating Artificial Leaves Ride the Wave of Clean Fuel Production

Floating Artificial Leaves Ride the Wave of Clean Fuel Production

Researchers have developed floating 'artificial leaves' that generate clean fuels from sunlight and water, and could eventually operate on a large scale at sea. The researchers designed ultra-thin, flexible devices, which take their inspiration from photosynthesis - the process by which plants convert sunlight into food. Since the low-cost, autonomous devices are light enough to float, they could be used to generate a sustainable alternative to petrol without taking up space on land.

Large-Area Organic Solar Cells That are Low-Cost, Flexible, Efficient

Large-Area Organic Solar Cells That are Low-Cost, Flexible, Efficient

Organic solar cells, which make use of organic materials to convert sunlight into electricity, are an attractive candidate for future photovoltaics. This is due to several of their desirable features, such as their light weight, flexibility, malleability, and, most importantly, high power conversion efficiency . Such qualities make them ideal for a wide range of applications.

Lab-Made Cartilage Gel Outperforms the Real Thing

Lab-Made Cartilage Gel Outperforms the Real Thing

Researchers say they have created the first gel-based cartilage substitute that is even stronger and more durable than the real thing. Mechanical testing reveals that the team's hydrogel -- a material made of water-absorbing polymers -- can be pressed and pulled with more force than natural cartilage, and is three times more resistant to wear and tear.

Colourful Solar Panels Are More Attractive

Colourful Solar Panels Are More Attractive

Solar panels aren't just for rooftops anymore - some buildings even have these power-generating structures all over their facades. But as more buildings and public spaces incorporate photovoltaic technologies, their monotonous black color could leave onlookers underwhelmed. Now, researchers have created solar panels that take on colorful hues while producing energy nearly as efficiently as traditional ones.

Human-Machine Interfaces Work Underwater, Generate Their Own Power

Human-Machine Interfaces Work Underwater, Generate Their Own Power

Wearable human-machine interface devices can be used to control machines, computers, music players, and other systems. A challenge for conventional human-machine interfaces is the presence of sweat on human skin. Scientists now describe their development of a type of human-machine interface that is stretchable, inexpensive, and waterproof. The device is based on a soft magnetoelastic sensor array that converts mechanical pressure from the press of a finger into an electrical signal.
