Envision Energy, Microsoft, Accenture and others launch a new alliance to support integretion of renewables and Internet of Things technologies.
A molecule that changes its chemical structure slightly before and after emission could provide a novel, stable approach to achieving high efficiency OLEDs.
The new company, Fluence, will combine AES' expertise in utility-scale storage with Sieman's global sales and engineering resources.
A new low-temperature solution printing technique allows fabrication of high-efficiency perovskite solar cells with large crystals intended to minimize current-robbing grain boundaries. The meniscus-assisted solution printing (MASP) technique boosts power conversion efficiencies to nearly 20 percent by controlling crystal size and orientation.
Advance points toward new generation of computers for coming superstorm of data. Just as the flood of data is reaching massive proportions, the ability of computer chips to process it into useful information is stalling. Now, researchers at Stanford University and MIT have built a new chip to overcome this hurdle.
The U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA-E) is investing $25 million in nine different photonics-driven effors to improve the efficiency of data centers.
The solid state transformer is poised to remake the electrical distribution grid.
Smart windows equipped with controllable glazing can augment lighting and cooling and heating systems, saving up to 40% in an average building's energy cost.
Programming, maintaining building controls can lower power bills.
A light-mediated methodology for growing patterned, emissive polymer brushes with micron feature resolution could lead to a more efficient, cost-effective method for creating OLED displays. Although many fabrication methods for OLEDs exist, they all have limitations with regard to scalability, pattern control or feature resolution.
