The Chemistry Behind Inorganic Solar Cells Liam Critchley
Inorganic solar cells are the most common and efficient solar cells and rely on many different aspects of chemistry to function. Without chemistry, it would not be possible to create the internal current generation mechanisms that enable solar cells to harness sunlight, and here we explain how.

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.

The Potential for Nanotechnology in the Aerospace Industry Liam Critchley
Innovation is always occurring in the aerospace industry. There is a constant drive to create lighter, more fuel-efficient, and safer aircraft. Even though many advanced materials are already used in modern-day aircraft, the beneficial properties of nanomaterials could improve them further.

Nanotechnology’s Impact on Optic and Photonic Technologies Liam Critchley
The need for perfectly crafted optical components has meant that it is harder for some optical technologies to be improved compared to other technologies. The ability of nanomaterials to reflect, absorb, and manipulate light has produced more advanced optical and photonic technologies.

Where Nanotechnology and Machine Learning Meet Liam Critchley
The fields of nanotechnology and machine learning are impressive in their own rights and will continue to grow into staple technologies of the future. Although both are still relatively new fields, they can be combined in certain scenarios to produce practical solutions to various problems.

Circuitry Has Felt Nanotechnology’s Impact Liam Critchley
Circuits and PCBs have been advancing rapidly for many decades, with each advancement being the product of the best available materials and processing environments of the time. In recent years, nanotechnology has been behind some of the significant advances in circuit board design.

How Nanotechnology Has Impacted Transistors Liam Critchley
Transistors are a staple component in many electronic devices and have continued to get more powerful and smaller. There are size limitations with current methods, so scientists have turned to nanomaterials and nanofabrication methods to create smaller and more efficient transistors.

An Introduction to Nanoelectronics Liam Critchley
As components need to get smaller to accommodate consumer needs, manufacturers need a way of doing this. Nanoelectronics is the creation of electrical components using nanomaterials that can not only reduce the size of the device, but also provide the same, if not better, performance.

Nanotechnology Is Inspiring Next-Gen Batteries Liam Critchley
Conventional Li-ion batteries have been the staple battery technology in many devices, from phones to handheld monitoring equipment, for many years. Rather than looking into new batteries, companies are looking to further improve the status quo by incorporating nanomaterials into Li-ion electrodes.
