New form of carbon capture actually creates power, rather than consuming it

New form of carbon capture actually creates power, rather than consuming it A new form of carbon capture could solve one of the major problems facing the most efficient versions of the technology: energy.This new electrochemical cell, on the other hand, produces industrially useful oxalates that could be sold to chemicals companies and manufacturing companies.

How USB charging works, or how to avoid blowing up your smartphone

How USB charging works, or how to avoid blowing up your smartphone It turns out there’s a method to all this madness — but first we have to explain how USB power actually works.There are now four USB specifications — USB 1.

Scientists create liquid light, get one step closer to spintronics

Scientists create liquid light, get one step closer to spintronics “We have made a field-effect light switch that can bridge the gap between optics and electronics,” says Dr.“We’re reaching the limits of how small we can make transistors, and electronics based on liquid light could be a way of increasing the power and efficiency of the electronics we rely on.
