Spin current from heat

New material increases efficiency


Electronic devices such as computers generate heat that mostly goes to waste. Physicists at Bielefeld University have found a way to use this energy: They apply the heat to generate magnetic signals known as 'spin currents'. In future, these signals could replace some of the electrical current in ...


Microbes as an Energy Source

A new generation of microbial fuel cells demonstrates amazingly high current density


Fuel cells could be the energy source of the future for many applications, including in vehicles. The direct transformation of chemical to electrical energy without a detour involving combustion is what makes this technology so environmentally friendly. The breakthrough into broad usage hasn't ...
