“Solar steam” generator outshines photovoltaic solar cells

Using light-capturing nanoparticles, Rice University researchers have achieved an impressive 82 percent conversion efficiency of sunlight directly into steam; a breakthrough they say will create highly cost-effective solutions for desalination, water purification and electricity generation. Detailing their work in the journal ACS Nano, the researchers say the solar steam method is so effective it can […]

Taming The Photon

In recent times, new types of light sources have been developed that emit photons one by one. Experiments with such emitters are motivated by plans for quantum computers or quantum information networks that use the quantum states of photons to process and transfer information. To work reliably, these quantum processing schemes require emission and absorption […]
