Why graphene hasn’t taken over the world…yet

– [Cory] It may not look like it, but I’m creating one of the strongest and most versatile materials on Earth, graphene. You’ve probably heard buzz about it. Graphene made big waves back in 2004, and it’s knocked around science news ever since. – A global race for graphene. – You know, it’s not just […]

Дрон в реакторной АЭС!

Great view opens here Hi guys! Here is DroneAdventures And I am at the roof of Crimea nuclear power station it is one of the most expensive unfinished buildings of the world It was near 80% done but Chernobyl catastrophe happened then there was few incidents then building freezed Now it looks like this It […]

Batteries and Supercapacitors

With Tesla’s recent purchase of Maxwell Technologies, I thought it was a perfect time to take a closer look at the current state of batteries and what could be next. As well as what supercapacitors are, why so many people are excited by them, and a wonder material that could change … everything. So we’re […]

Carbon Nanotubes Might Be the Secret Boost Solar Energy Has Been Looking For

Solar panels are an incredible innovation in energy tech, but they’re way less efficient than they could be, because they have a problem: heat. Specifically, waste heat, or energy that’s lost while converting the sun’s energy into electricity. But a new technology—made possible by carbon nanotubes—may be just the thing that brings solar panels into […]

Graphene Future Applications

Why have you brought a burnt sausage into the lab? – Well Dimitrios we’ve all been there getting carried away at the barbecue and burn our sausages. Although you may be a bad cook, you may actually be a great chemist. – Great chemist? How can I be a great chemist by burning my sausages? […]

Why Scientists Used Graphene Nanoribbons to Engineer Bionic Mushrooms

Imagine the world…powered by mushrooms. No, I’m not on drugs, this is an actual scientific thing–we’ve now invented mushrooms that produce electricity, no fossil fuels required. Let me explain: researchers at the Stevens Institute of Technology just created what they’re calling a bionic mushroom—a fungus they’ve modified to produce electricity! It really is basically any […]

Graphene-coated solar panel generates Electricity from Rain Drops.

Scientists in China are developing a new kind of solar panel that could be used to generate power from rain drops. By using a thin layer of highly conductive graphene, the solar cell could effectively harness power from rain. The salt contained in rain separates into ions (ammonium, calcium and sodium), making graphene and natural […]

Is This New Super Carbon Better Than Graphene?

Graphene is heralded as a wonder-material that could completely change our world. Its incredibly flexible, strong and conductive carbon structure promises to revolutionize energy storage, computing, and technology as we know it. But graphene isn’t the only nanocarbon out there with promising applications. There’s one in particular that’s been capturing scientists’ attention for decades, and […]

Bio-inspired energy storage: a new light for solar power | QPT

Inspired by an American fern, researchers have developed a groundbreaking prototype that could be the answer to the storage challenge still holding solar back as a total energy solution. The new type of electrode created by researchers from RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, could boost the capacity of existing integrable storage technologies by 3000 per […]
