Physicists have made a breakthrough in revising methods largely discarded 15 years ago. They have discovered a microscopic mechanism that will allow gallium nitride semiconductors to be used in electronic devices that distribute large amounts of electric power.
Energy commodity prices rose 5,4 % in September, while non-energy prices rose 1,5 percent.
The ability to charge cellphones in seconds is one step closer after researchers at the University of Waterloo used nanotechnology to significantly improve energy-storage devices known as supercapacitors.
Global car exports by country were valued at US$698.2 billion for 2016. Cars represent the world’s number one export product, surpassing crude petroleum revenues handicapped by lower oil prices.
Energy commodity prices rose 4,4 % in August, while non-energy prices rose 1,3 percent.
As demand grows for more versatile, advanced robotics and other technologies, the need for components that can enable these applications also increases. Producing such components en masse has been a major challenge. But now, researchers report that they have developed a way to help meet this need by printing electronics that can fold themselves into a desired shape.
Global sales from truck exports by country amounted to US$117.3 billion in 2016.
