Living Ink Solar Panels Could Power Small Devices

By:┬áLou Del Bello Cyanobacteria have been around for billions of years. They manufacture their own food through photosynthesis, absorbing solar light and turning it into energy. Much like plants, they release oxygen in the process, and their presence may have changed our atmosphere so much that bigger creatures could eventually breathe and thrive on Earth. […]

Graphene Layer Lets Solar Panels Generate Energy From Raindrops

BY:┬áKESAVAN UNNIKRISHNAN Researchers in China have developed Graphene solar panels that can generate energy from raindrops. The solar panels with a respectable 6.53 percent solar-to-electric conversion efficiency allows generation of power during periods of clouds and rain. The team of researchers from the Ocean University of China in Qingdao and Yunnan Normal University in Kunming […]
