  • Tree-Based Battery Cathodes

    "Last tree in the LAB" (by Yuni Lim www.yuniworks.com ) As we hail ourselves as masters of Science and engineering, it can be seen time and time again that humans still have much to learn from the simplest of structures that surround us. This time, that…
  • Wait, Our Electronics Are Organic?

    >Click the image< >Click the image< We are not talking about food here, it is the "organic electronics" that are finding their way into our electrical lives. It is not just a label, but a growing industry with potential to bring us new-age efficiency…
  • Researchers showing off flexible transistor

    In what could only be described as ‘fervent scientist madness’, researchers at Georgia Tech have developed a transistor with excellent stability and performance for use on plastic electronics. In addition, it can be manufactured at relatively low temperatures…
  • Electrical circuit runs off of tree power

    Researchers from the University of Washington have developed a completely tree-powered electrical circuit. The nano-scale device, approximately 130 nanometers in size, consumes just 10 billionths of a watt (10 nanowatts). Unlike the legendary science…
