Adaptive Material with self tracking of the sun Could Cut the Cost of Solar in Half to 4 cents per kwh

Glint Photonics is developing a novel solar concentrator in which an embedded liquid layer provides passive and automatic optical alignment to the incident sunlight, adjusting the optical properties of the concentrator to track the position of the sun. This “self-tracking” functionality is actuated by the sunlight itself, and doesn’t require any control system. It results …

A Working theory of high temperature superconductors finds magnetism as the quantum glue and is able to predict properties

Physicists have identified the “quantum glue” that underlies a promising type of superconductivity — a crucial step towards the creation of energy superhighways that conduct electricity without current loss. Superconductivity arises when two electrons in a material become bound together, forming what is called a Cooper pair. Groundbreaking experiments performed by Freek Massee and Milan …
