Nanotechnology may be key to solar energy and energy storage

Nanotechnology may be key to solar energy and energy storage | AANVE! |Website Designing Company in Delhi-India,SEO Services Company Delhi | Scoop.it

A new study from the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI has found that nanotechnology will bring significant benefits to the energy sector, especially to energy storage and solar energy. Improved materials efficiency and reduced manufacturing costs are just two of the real economic benefits that nanotechnology already brings these fields and that’s only the beginning. Battery storage capacity could be extended, solar cells could be produced cheaper, and the lifetime of solar cells or batteries for electric cars could be increased, all thanks to continued development of nanotechnology.

As nanotechnology continues to grow, the amount of pre-existing technologies that can be improved by it increases significantly. As described in this article, the use of nanotechnology could result in drastic changes to the way energy is stored and used. It could provide extended battery life as well as larger storage capacities, making it incredibly useful in the ever-expanding technological world.

The Next Generation in Neural Prosthetics

The Next Generation in Neural Prosthetics | AANVE! |Website Designing Company in Delhi-India,SEO Services Company Delhi | Scoop.it

Following up on the success of cochlear and retinal prostheses for people who have lost sensory function, neuroscientists see a limitless horizon for related devices that are able to read electrical and chemical signals from the nervous system to stimulate capability and restore quality of life in persons suffering injury and disease.

In the future, according to researchers, the devices – known as neural prosthetics – will help epileptics, persons with treatment-resistant depression and chronic pain, victims of Alzheimer’s disease, wounded war veterans suffering post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, persons with speech disabilities, and individuals who have sustained spinal cord injury and loss of limbs, among other applications in the research pipeline.

But before neural prosthetics can advance, engineers will be called on to make innovative use of materials to design and fabricate devices that allow sustained electronic functioning in the harsh environment of the human body, without causing tissue infection and other serious adverse conditions. Research efforts have focused on enhancing the performance of various types of materials used in neural prosthetics, in addition to developing interface technologies that enable the micro devices to be safely implanted in human tissue for long periods.

Very interesting wearable - on the inside of the body, - their big issue is having to solve the contradiction of stiff and flexible, turns out it is what is known as Physical Contradiction based on time.  Numerous inventive principles for solving that problem.

This source further discusses the use of brain signals for prosthetics. It also discusses the progression of this technology and its importance.
