Flexible solar cells woven into fabric could power wearable electronics

Flexible solar cells woven into fabric could power wearable electronics | Tech Habit | Scoop.it

Wearable electronics are quickly becoming the fashion. And there could soon be a way to power those electronics indefinitely, now that scientists in China have developed a solar cell ‘textile’ that could be woven into clothes. The textile retains a power-generation efficiency close to 1% even after been bent more than 200 times, and can be illuminated from both sides.

 

Scientists have been looking into flexible solar cells for decades, partly for coating irregularly shaped objects but also for integrating into wearable fabrics. One popular line of investigation has been dye-sensitized solar cells, in which a pigment absorbs sunlight to generate electrons and their positive counterparts, holes, before passing on those charges to inexpensive semiconductors. These solar cells are cheap and flexible, but the liquid nature of their pigments means that they must be well sealed. Bend a dye-sensitized solar cell more than a few times and the seals are likely to break, destroying its light-harvesting properties.

 

That is why Huisheng Peng at Fudan University in Shanghai and colleagues have been exploring another option: polymer solar cells. Although their maximum efficiencies fall below 10% – about half that of crystalline silicon, the most prevalent solar cell – polymer solar cells are lightweight, flexible and easy to manufacture. Peng and colleagues’ solar cell textile consists of microscopic interwoven metal wires coated with an active polymer (to absorb the sunlight), titanium dioxide nanotubes (to conduct the electrons) and another active polymer (to conduct the holes). The researches coated each side of the textile with transparent, conductive sheets of carbon nanotubes, which complete the circuit.

 

Because of the textile’s symmetry, the cell can be illuminated on either side. In tests it exhibited a maximum efficiency of 1.08%, which varied by less than 0.03% after 200 cycles of bending. However, the textile is currently only about the size of a fingernail. ‘The main difficulties encountered are how to scale up the solar-cell textile while maintaining high energy-conversion efficiencies,’ says Peng.

 

Materials scientist Anyuan Cao, who was not involved with the work, believes the results are interesting, particularly the use of carbon nanotube sheets to allow illumination from both sides. But he warns that wearable solar cells are still some way off. ‘Current textiles demonstrated in laboratories are too small and have low energy conversion efficiencies,’ says Cao, who is based at Peking University in China.

 

‘The materials involved and the fabrication processes are still expensive. Practical use not only requires that the textiles should withstand simple bending, but also that they should sustain much more complex deformations such as folding and twisting, even under dynamic conditions.’

"A research breakthrough has identified a way to charge tiny health-tracking devices that could be embedded in our brains, hearts or livers.

New wireless charging technique developed at Stanford University could enable embeddable sensors, pacemakers and nerve stimulators
A breakthrough in wireless technology could allow a new wave of health tracking tools that can be embedded inside our bodies – in our livers, hearts and even in our brains.
A new wireless charging technique known as “mid-field wireless transfer” can deliver power to tiny electronic devices such as sensors, pacemakers and nerve stimulators embedded deep within the body. They can be charged using a device the size of a credit card placed outside the body.
"With this method, we can safely transmit power to tiny implants in organs like the heart or brain, well beyond the range of current near-field systems,” said Dr John Ho, co-author of the study that appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
‘Make these devices as small as possible’
Sensors can be embedded deeper into the right areas of the body, without needing to be close to the skin for current near-field wireless charging technologies like those that charge electric toothbrushes. The embedded devices will also no longer need large, bulky batteries, which means it is possible for them to fit into tighter, more sensitive spaces.
“We need to make these devices as small as possible to more easily implant them deep in the body and create new ways to treat illness and alleviate pain," explained Professor Ada Poon, lead researcher behind the new technique in a press release......"

Make a Name for Yourself: 11 Personal Branding Power Tips | Social Media Today

Make a Name for Yourself: 11 Personal Branding Power Tips | Social Media Today | Tech Habit | Scoop.it

Perhaps we don’t have that much in common. Ah, but we do. Personal brands are we. Our agendas may differ—better job, more clients, book sales, or (your goal here)—but we seek the same things: recognition, respect, influence and success.

You, my friend, are a brand.

A photographer. Life coach. Presentation expert. Alternative energy entrepreneur. Website developer. Skin care clinician. These are six simplified profiles of clients who have hired me recently to help them create more effective online marketing by developing their personal brand.

This is no trend. It’s social media, publishing, marketing, sales, work, play, passion and everything you read about all rolled into one.

I realize now it’s what I’ve been doing (and sometimes struggling with) since I went to work for myself. Or is it? It’s probably more accurate to say it’s what I’ve been doing since my bar mitzvah—defining the man I am.

With that in mind, I submit to you personal branding is something you need to understand. It’s something you need to develop deliberately—even if what you’ve been doing and saying to this day has been largely accidental.

Interesting comments about creating your own personal branding

Jeff Domansky's curator insight, July 31, 11:18 PM

Here's a look at the ins and outs of personal branding.

Kathleen Smith's curator insight, September 24, 12:08 AM

The author of this article has given 11 branding tips in terms of social media. He also refers to the personal branding experts and some helpful books that they wrote. 5 out of 11 tips are from Michael Hyatt's book called 'Platform'. This article is really helpful especially to start up bloggers or marketers trying to make a name for themselves or working for a company that is trying to build a brand.

Personal branding is merely a way of selling yourself, and it’s never been more important, thanks to social media.

Social media has given us a platform to broadcast our personal messaging to accomplish our goals. For professional purposes, we have LinkedIn to connect with others in our industry. For sharing with friends and family, there’s Facebook. Pinterest is where we show off our passions. Instagram is for visual self-expression. Lastly, Twitter is all of the above.
