New Generation Of Fabricated And Flexible Organic Solar Cells To Increase Efficiency - German researchers are developing a new generation of solar cells to improve the energy conversion efficiency. A bunch of promising researchers from the Light Technology Institute of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are the pioneers of this new project. The project is supposed to be finished in four years as it is the deal now which aims to improve the efficiency of organic solar cells to more than…

How ice forms on the surfaces of mineral dust particles in the atmosphere has been revealed by a team from UCL and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany. - See more at: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/news-articles/1216/091216-Understanding-how-ice-crystals-form-in-clouds#sthash.Czx0RbXz.dpuf

In the atmosphere, feldspar particles act as ice nuclei that make ice crystals grow in clouds and enable precipitation. The discovery was made by researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and University College London (UCL) with the help of electron microscopy observations and molecular dynamics computer modeling. The ice nucleus proper is a quasi-hidden crystal surface of the feldspar that is exposed at surface defects only. The researchers present their findings in Science.

A new sensor belt prototype developed at KIT allows an ECG to be recorded around the clock for up to six months, increasing the chances a problem will be discovered and treated before an emergency strikes.
