Global warming and fossil fuel depletion means individuals need to look to renewable energy resources. Solar cells using nanotechnology could provide an alternative. Martin Kaltenbrunner helped discover the lightest, thinnest, and most flexible solar cell.
Two semi-conductive layers transform sunlight into electrical current. Wafer thin solar cells can become transparent and integrated into windows. Learn the process for manufacturing clear solar cells.
Nanoparticles exist in foods, sunscreen, and water-repellant technologies. Sumio Iijima discovered carbon nanotubes. Paola Ayala and Oleg Domanov explore electronic, optic, and physical properties.
Scientists are designing a space lift using nanotubes as the connective material. Researches demonstrate how the right frequency is necessary for nanotubes to resonate. Ayala invented a unique cleaning technique to help the procedure.
Experts argue whether relatively thin, long, single-walled nanotubes are dangerous. Lung cells change as a result of contact with short carbon nanotubes, but they do not die.
