New type of washable solar cell developed 20.9.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Scientists have developed a new type of water-proof solar cell which can provide electricity even after being soaked in water or stretched and compressed. The finding could open the way for wearable solar cells, which will provide power to devices such as health monitors incorporated into clothing, researchers said. These could include sensors that record heartbeats and body temperature, for example, providing early warning of medical problems, they said. Researchers, including those from the University of Tokyo in Japan, developed extremely thin and flexible organic photovoltaic cells, coated on both sides with stretchable and waterproof films, based on a material called PNTz4T. They deposited the device in an inverse architecture onto a one-micrometre-thick parylene film.  The ultra-thin device was then placed onto acrylic-based elastomer and the top side of the device was coated with an identical elastomer, giving it a coating on both sides to prevent water infiltration. The elastomer, while allowing ...

Petrol prices at three years high: Oil Minister rules out intervention on daily rates revision 13.9.2017 DNA: Top News
 Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Wednesday ruled out government intervention to disrupt the daily revision in petrol and diesel prices despite Rs 7.3 per litre spike in rates since July, saying the reform will continue. He however remained non-committal on cutting taxes to soften the blow of relentless rise in prices since July 3, the government need to finance huge infrastructure and social projects has to be balanced with consumer needs. Terming the criticism of spike in rates as unfair, he said the drop in prices for over a fortnight after the daily price revision was introduced on June 16 has been ignored and only "temporary" phenomenon of rising trend is being highlighted. India relies on imports to meet 80 per cent of its needs and so domestic fuel rates have been aligned to movement of equivalent product prices in the international market since April 2002. Previously the rates were changed every fortnight but since June 16 they are revised daily, Pradhan said, adding that the daily revision ...

GKN to reveal world’s most advanced electric driveline 12.9.2017 DNA: Opinion
It would be easy to take a simplistic view when it comes to how electric vehicles (EVs) can be made more practical, and therefore more popular. As the limited range they have on a single battery charge is what concerns most potential buyers, all that needs to be achieved to make EVs a practical alternative to internal combustion models is to develop better batteries, right? In some ways that's true, but battery technology isn't advancing anywhere near as fast as we'd like, so other ways of improving EV range have to be explored too. And that's exactly what GKN Driveline is doing by revealing an all-new electric axle concept this week at the 67th Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA). The new eAxle from GKN Driveline is called 'eTwinsterX,' and it's said to offer three big advantages over conventional electric drivelines. To begin with, the design is an integrated coaxial format, which means the electric drive (eDrive) unit is significantly smaller than any existing systems that offer an equivalent ...
