SCIENTISTS DEVELOP SAFER LEAD-BASED PEROVSKITE SOLAR CELL STRUCTURE

Researchers at Northern Illinois University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado, reported in the journal Nature on a potential breakthrough in the development of hybrid perovskite solar cells. Considered rising stars in the field of solar energy, perovskite solar cells convert light into electricity. They’re potentially cheaper and simpler to produce than …

Implementation of Simultaneous Multi-Streaming of Live Solar Eclipse Video via 5.8 GHz AirMax

I. Introduction FOR the 2017 solar eclipse ballooning, the live streaming of the videos capturing the shadows of the solar eclipse was one of the main objectives. All teams who participated in the 2017 solar eclipse ballooning project were initially provided with a baseline ballooning system [1][2] that consisted of a ground station and four …

AMBIENT HUMIDITY ENERGY HARVESTERS COULD COMPETE WITH SOLAR CELLS

Leveraging the natural adsorption–desorption exchange of water molecules from ambient air at the interface of a nanoporous mesh of protein nanowires, a team of researchers from the University of Massachusetts has demonstrated a durable form of energy harvesting that could potentially compete with solar cells on volumetric power density. By Julien Happich @ eenewseurope.com Publishing their …

INCANDESCENT LIGHT BULBS AT THE NANOSCALE

Using tiny arrays of carbon nanotubes, a team of researchers at Rice University has designed nanoscale incandescent light source that could be tuned to precisely emit at specific wavelength, based on the materials’ configuration. The so-called nanoscale thermal emitters described in a paper titled “Non‐Hermitian Selective Thermal Emitters using Metal–Semiconductor Hybrid Resonators” published in the journal of …

A COMPLETE RASPBERRY PI POWER MONITORING SYSTEM

As the world has become more environmentally conscious, we’ve seen an uptick in projects that monitor or control home energy use. At a minimum one of these setups involves a microcontroller and some kind of clamp-on current sensor, but if you’re looking for resources to take things a bit farther, this Raspberry Pi energy monitoring system …
