S Ramaprabhu’s Alternative Energy & Nanotechnology Lab in IIT Madras reports a method to store hydrogen at room temperature. A step towards making vehicles running on hydrogen fuel.
Researchers from the Shivaji University report gaining control on the morphology of titanium dioxide nano structures. Titanium dioxide crystals resembling cauliflowers are better for application in dye sensitised solar cells, they say.
Coal based power plants generate huge amounts of carbon dioxide. What steps can the power plants take to reach zero emission standards? Scientists from NIT Rourkela show the way.
By doping zinc oxide with other metals, Chennai scientists make dye sensitised solar cells a more feasible and less costly energy harvester.
Producing biodiesel from waste cooking oil leads to raw glycerol as a by-product. The environmental concerns about the by-product is a deterrent to using waste oil as a raw material for biofuel. Scientists from Gujarat now have a solution that is music to restaurant chain owners.
The efficiency of solar cells is like a jigsaw puzzle. All the pieces are disparate. Though the solution depends on every single piece available, the progress depends on some key pieces. The structure and arrangement of the nanoparticles is one such key piece in the puzzle that can lead us to quicker solutions. Rakesh Sonker,… Read More ›
