For soldiers deployed in isolated areas, maintaining a consistent heat source to a military tent proves challenging. And while electric space heaters are commonplace in offices and homes, they are too dangerous for military use.Continue reading →
A recent experiment done by researchers from Stanford University in California tries to expand on the viability of adapting solar panel technology to create electricity and energy from the night sky. This study has been documented by Science Alert and offers unique perspectives on identifying another potential source of renewable power. Essentially, researchers were making photodiodes contained in the solar panels “work backwards” in an attempt to generate power from a cold source.Continue reading →

Our researchers and engineers here at II-VI Marlow thrive off of finding new and innovative ways to improve our technology. Thermoelectric devices provide renewable, sustainable energy in many different ways, but the technology itself is still fairly new and scientists world-wide are trying to engineer more efficient devices. We already know that thermoelectric technology is versatile and reliable, but when they become efficient on a large scale, their potential applications could be endless.Continue reading →
Replacing batteries is the bane of my existence.
They always seem to go dead right when I’m comfortably settled on my couch, or leave me stranded in an empty parking lot on the way home from work. The right size of batteries is never available when I need it. So, if I ever catch that dumb little Energizer bunny beating a drum … well, you get the point.Continue reading →
