’Magic’ alloy could spur next generation of solar cells
ANN ARBOR‚??In what could be a major step forward for a new generation of solar cells called "concentrator photovoltaics," University of Michigan researchers have developed a new semiconductor alloy that can capture the near-infrared light located on the leading edge of the visible light spectrum. Easier to manufacture and at least 25 percent less costly than previous formulations, it's believed to be the world's most cost-effective material that can capture near-infrared light‚??and is compatible with the gallium arsenide semiconductors often used in concentrator photovoltaics.

Mind the liquid gap: liquids are capable of supporting waves with short wavelengths only
Flowing particles in liquids act as a filter to suppress long-wavelength waves but allow short-wavelength ones to be supported, according to physicists at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). Liquids are the least understood state of matter and for a long time it has been believed that they can sustain both gas-like waves with long wavelengths and solid-like waves with short wavelengths, but it wasn‚??t clear just how solid-like waves propagate in liquids.

Physicists squeeze extra data from superfast x-ray probes using machine learning
Chemical reactions could be probed in even greater detail using a method invented by Imperial researchers that better characterises ultrafast x-rays. X-rays can be used to investigate the structures of, and reactions between, molecules on very small scales and at high speed. To do this, scientists use free electron lasers (FELs) to create a train of x-ray pulses.
