What is Betavoltaic Power?

The term betavoltaic is interchangeable with atomic battery, nuclear battery, tritium battery and radioisotope generator. They are used to designate a device, which expends energy from the decay of a radioactive isotope to produce electricity.

Improved Way to Make III-V Solar Cells Could Hold Key to Lower Costs

Scientists at the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) work to refine the technique called hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE), which holds the potential to produce cheaper, more efficient solar cells capable of producing more electricity.

Talking CHS Technology with The Coretec Group

CHS, or cyclohexasilane (Si6H12), is an excellent Si precursor, many say the best source for the atom Si. The silicon atom has wide ranging chemical characteristics; from semiconductor chips to silicone caulk to Si oxide (glass).

Solar Energy Storage Problem May be Solved in New Single-System Technology

Generating power from the sun isnt the problem. The technology has been there for decades. Storing that power efficiently, however, has been a challenge. Until now.

Quantum Dot Solar Cells Are Coming

A quantum dot solar cell (QDSC) is a solar cell that uses quantum dots as the captivating photovoltaic material. It is used to replace bulky materials such as silicon, or copper indium gallium selenide.

Speeding Up Discoveries of Organic and Organic-Inorganic Materials by Electronic Structure Theory

How do you identify the ideal molecular structure for a solar absorber or, perhaps, for a drug supplied as a powder of molecular crystals? The computing power of one of the worlds most advanced supercomputers can help.

New Control Strategy Helps Reap Maximum Power from Wind Farms

UT Dallas researchers use supercomputers at the Texas Advanced Computing Center to develop methods that can improve wind energy production.

Lithium Battery Life Could Double by Adding Graphene Girders to Silicon Electrodes

Graphite has been the default choice of active material for anodes in lithium-ion batteries since their original launch by Sony but researchers and manufacturers have long sought a way to replace graphite with silicon, as it is an abundantly available element with ten times
