Watch the joules and the pounds will look after themselves say speakers at ClayTech UK who feel companies should concentrate on streamlining energy usage through adhering to low carbon legislation and more cost effective machinery.
The behaviour of droplets in polymers under electrical voltage has been observed for the first time. Their discovery could lead to improved insulation materials to deal with increasing loads of electricity
Discarded silicon is being used in place of carbon/graphite or tin-based compounds to create flexible components for rechargeable lithium-ion (Li) batteries. The project could lead to inexpensive batteries that conform to any shape
A team of researchers involving the University of Manchester and Lancaster University have produced a ‘graphene roadmap’, which suggests that it might be used to revolutionise a diverse range of things, from broadband connections to anti-cancer drugs
