Graphene hybrid improves PV efficiency

Imagine the environmental benefits if we could all simply paint solar cells onto the roof of our houses, or onto any surface for that matter. We could do this using perovskite solar cells (PSC), but, due to their instability, they have not yet been widely introduced. Now, researchers from the Graphene Flagship have developed hybrids

CBPC coating for drippy pipeline

When an electric utility in the Southeastern United States sought to protect an above ground natural gas pipeline against corrosion, the goal was to cost effectively do so while minimising downtime and environmental impact. Yet in the power and petrochemical industries, protecting above ground pipeline from corrosion can be a challenge, particularly when the pipeline

Successful test flight for Stratolaunch

Stratolaunch Systems has successfully completed the first flight of the world's largest all-composite aircraft, the Stratolaunch. With a dual fuselage design and wingspan greater than the length of a football field, it took flight from the Mojave Air & Space Port. Achieving a maximum speed of 189 miles per hour, the plane flew for 2.5

Solar investment provides 40% of energy demands

PVC manufacturer Cary Compounds has invested in a solar array at a shared facility in Manalapan, New Jersey.  Some 1,566 monocrystalline high efficiency solar panels were installed on the roof of the manufacturing plant that provides 639,000 kwh (kilowatt-hours of AC electricity), which is about 40% of the building's annual electricity usage. The Carys took

Zeteo Tech to create a new biological sensor

Zeteo Tech has been awarded a contract of up to $6.5 million (including options) from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop and test a new sensor technology that enables real-time detection of aerosolised biological threat agents including bacteria, viruses, and toxins. The contract was awarded in support of the Department's Science and

Nothing beats the pleasant crackling and gentle warmth of a dancing wood-fueled flame. As you settle into your hearthside armchair at the end of a long day, the last thing you want

Connectors offer wide bandwidth

Fairview Microwave has introduced a new extended series of mmWave, removable, end launch PCB connectors that are designed for SERDES applications like cloud servers, supercomputing and high-speed networking.  The new line connectors consists of 16 models operating in a wide bandwidth that supports high data rates and VSWR as low as 1.10:1. They are offered

Battery storage to accelerate fast charging

US power provider EVgo is about to complete 14 battery storage systems located at 11 fast charging stations, America’s largest deployment of battery storage systems at public fast charging stations.  EVgo's network provides a stable load to the grid. Battery storage systems can offer relief to demand charge rate structures that inhibit fast charging deployment
