Honda researchers' nanotubes innovation has electricity transport implications

Honda researchers have developed a method for growing microscopic carbon nanotubes that may open the door to more efficient methods of transporting electricity, reports the Columbus Dispatch.

The research was conducted by Honda Research Institute USA, which has offices in Columbus, together with Purdue University and the University of Louisville. The carbon nanotubes, a hundred thousand times thinner than a human hair, are grown on a metal surface that resembles honeycomb sheets.

OSU finds silver lining in polymer solar cells development

Researchers at Ohio State University are experimenting with polymer semiconductors that absorb the sun's energy and generate electricity, reports Science Daily. The goal: lighter, cheaper, and more-flexible solar cells.

Researchers have discovered that adding tiny bits of silver to the plastic boosts the materials' electrical current generation. Without silver, the material generated 6.2 milli-amps per square centimeter. With silver, it generated 7.0 -- an increase of almost 12 percent.
