New solar cell may be most efficient in the world 13.7.2017 DNA: Opinion
Scientists have designed a new solar cell that converts direct sunlight to electricity with 44.5 per cent efficiency, and may potentially be the most efficient solar cell in the world. The prototype integrates multiple cells stacked into a single device capable of capturing nearly all of the energy in the solar spectrum, researchers said. The approach developed by researchers at George Washington University (GWU) in the US is different from the solar panels one might commonly see on rooftops or in fields. The new device uses concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) panels that employ lenses to concentrate sunlight onto tiny, micro-scale solar cells. Due to their small size - less than one millimetre square - solar cells utilising more sophisticated materials can be developed cost effectively, researchers said. The stacked cell acts almost like a sieve for sunlight, with the specialised materials in each layer absorbing the energy of a specific set of wavelengths. By the time the light is funnelled through the ...

New robotic drones can travel by land and air 28.6.2017 DNA: Top News
MIT scientists have developed a system of eight robotic drones that can fly through the air as well as drive on ground, efficiently navigating cityscapes with parking spots, no-fly zones and landing pads. Robots that are good at one mode of transportation are usually bad at another. Airborne drones are fast and agile, but generally have too limited of a battery life to travel for long distances. Ground vehicles, on the other hand, are more energy efficient, but slower and less mobile. Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) are aiming to develop robots that can both manoeuvre around on land and take to the skies. "The ability to both fly and drive is useful in environments with a lot of barriers, since you can fly over ground obstacles and drive under overhead obstacles," said Brandon Araki, PhD student at MIT. "Normal drones can't manoeuvre on the ground at all. A drone with wheels is much more mobile while having only ...
