The Chemistry Behind Thin Film Solar Cells Liam Critchley
The distinct types of thin film solar cells have different working principles based on their fundamental chemistry. All thin film solar cells work differently from conventional inorganic solar cells, and even though their efficiencies are not as high, they have other benefits.

Using 2D Materials to Create Water Energy-Harvesting Devices Liam Critchley
Designers can use 2D materials to develop different water-harvesting applications beyond the mainstream tidal and hydroelectric power harvesting process. These include harvesting energy from salinity gradients where water bodies meet and harvesting energy from rainfall and other water motions.

2D Materials in Triboelectric Nanogenerators (TENGs) Liam Critchley
The inherent thinness, active surface, and mechanical properties of 2D materials have the potential to create more efficient and longer-lasting TENG devices for powering small-scale electronics.

Power Integration for Renewable Energy Efficiency Adam Kimmel
Integrating renewable energy sources can reduce emissions, improve asset utilization, and add resiliency and reliability to energy production. But society will need multiple sources to deliver consistent, high-quality, cost-effective power.

Hydrogen Fuel Cell vs. Battery for the Connected Car Adam Kimmel
Consumers demand more from their connected cars. This requires power. Which power source will win the upcoming grid war? Batteries or hydrogen fuel cells?

A Bit About Connecting Qubits: Quantum Computing Paul Golata
A new computing revolution is underway–a computational breakthrough well beyond the current boundaries imposed by a binary system. This revolution is quantum computing, which replaces bits with quantum bits.

Moving from Smart to Brilliant Energy Jon Gabay
Making energy use more efficient on a device is common. Doing it with a distributed random needs-based environment is more difficult. Appliances that can work together to assure peak-demand load conformity will have an advantage over those that don’t.

Going Off-Grid Efficiently With MicroGrids Paul Lee
Microgrids are becoming popular for environmental and dollar cost savings. However, adoption is dependent on efficient power conversion electronics enabled by the increasing use of wide bandgap semiconductors.

Energy Harvesting Could End Fossil Fuel Dependency KEMET Electronics
Demand for safe, power-efficient, renewable energy sources that require little or no maintenance is increasing on a daily basis. Learn why energy harvesting holds great promise as a solution to overcome the depletion of fossil fuels.

Buckle Up, Put It In Drive and ‘ROHM’ the Open Road Paul Golata
Buckle up, put it in drive and, roam the open road. ROHM Semiconductor’ LEDs and LED drivers make this possible. Like the American bison, you have the freedom to roam where you want. Take advantage and drive out with your lights on and your seat belts fastened.
