Photo of the Day: X-Ray Study Points to Higher Energy Yields

February 25, 2015 10:55 am | by Thomas Zoufal, Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY | News | Comments

Magnetic nanoparticles can increase the performance of solar cells made from polymers - provided the mix is right. This is the result of an X-ray study at DESY's synchrotron radiation source PETRA III. Adding about one per cent of such nanoparticles by weight makes the solar cells more efficient, according to the findings of a team of scientists ...

Ultra-Thin Nanowires Trap Electron 'Twisters' that Disrupt Superconductors

February 25, 2015 9:42 am | by Phil Sneiderman, Johns Hopkins University | News | Comments

Superconductor materials are prized for their ability to carry an electric current without resistance, but this valuable trait can be crippled or lost when electrons swirl into tiny tornado-like formations called vortices. These disruptive mini-twisters often form in the presence of magnetic fields, such as those produced by electric motors ...
