They discovered something they’d never seen before in an organic—electrons were skittering unfettered through the material, even outside the power-generating area of the cell.
New Class of Light-Bending Material Spun With DNA and Gold Nanoparticles Can Achieve First Real-Life Invisibility Cloak
The technique would be used to create metamaterials, meaning materials that don’t exist in nature. But nature itself still contains all kinds of stuff made from particles that can control their optic qualities. Cloaking might be possible.
Under the laws of classical physics, there are theoretical limits to these processes. But they are unrealistically high: For instance, we know that a car can never go faster than the speed of light. And no matter how much fuel is on the planet, or how much roadway or how strong the construction methods, no car will get close to going even 10 percent of the speed of light.
The researchers outfitted the microcavity with a semiconductor made from two chemical elements, one that is metallic and one that is not. This particular semiconductor was about the width of an atom, which is more than a million times smaller than a human hair.
Researchers Find A New Approach For Producing Hydrogen Gas Which Can Be Used To Develop Economical Green Fuel
ydrogen gas generated from various organic transformations indicated the successful performance of the new catalyst. “After completion of the reaction, the catalyst can be recovered to reuse for further reactions, simply by using a magnet,” Garima Jaiswal, a member of the research team, told India Science Wire.
New Rechargeable Batteries That Use Iron Instead Of Cobalt Could Be A Game Changer For Electric Cars
It would be a dull month if a new rechargeable battery project didn’t make headlines amid all the excitement surrounding electric cars. This month’s indisputable winner is the lithium-ion battery that replaces cobalt with iron, and-rather surprisingly-works, at least according to the people who came up with the idea.
