Battery made from a diamond and nuclear waste could last thousands of years

A team of physicists and chemists at the University of Bristol have developed a new type of battery that could change the way we think of long-term energy storage and electricity generation. The researchers looked at the problem of nuclear waste and came up with a battery that uses a man-made diamond to turn that … Read more

Wi-fi from nanocrystal-based lasers

A nanocrystalline material that rapidly makes white light out of blue light has been developed by KAUST researchers (ACS Photonics, “Perovskite Nanocrystals as a Color Converter for Visible Light Communication”). While Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are now well established technologies, there are several advantages gained by shortening the wavelength of the electromagnetic waves used for transmitting … Read more
