Silver Nanoparticles Enable Palladium to Become More Effective Catalyst for Fuel Cells
April 22, 2011
In the continuing saga of nanotechnology’s application for fuel cells in this blog (see here and here) I have come to realize that there is a fervent belief among some that the reason we don’t have fuel cells powering our automobiles today is the result of a conspiracy among certain interests (presumably the oil industry) to block their use.
Nanotechnology Creates Efficient, Less Expensive Hydrogen Fuel Cell
February 06, 2011
Hydrogen is, without a doubt, the most reasonable means by which to move into an alternative energy future. It can be created by simply splitting water molecules, stores indefinitely, burns 10 times hotter than traditional natural gases, is the lightest element known making it easy to transport, and the byproducts of processing it for energy are chemically pure water and medical grade oxygen.
Nanotechnology for Photovoltaics: A State-of-the-Art Overview
July 27, 2010
Every hour, enough sunlight showers the earth to power all the world’s needs for an entire year -- if it could only be captured. A remarkable new book, Nanotechnology for Photovoltaics presents for the first time state-of-the-art overview of these promising nanoscale research projects in over 430 pages.
NanoScienceWorks talks with the editor, Dr. Loucas Tsakalakos, a senior scientist and project leader for advanced/next generation photovoltaics at General Electric’s Global Research Center in Niskayuna, New York.
Oregon first in solar nanotechnology
July 21, 2010
GRESHAM, Ore.-- Oregon is host to a production plant that will be the first to produce thin-film printable solar power technology, a photovoltaic company announced. Photovoltaic company Solexant Corp. announced it would set up a plant in Gresham, Ore., that will be the first thin film solar manufacture facility of its kind in the world.
