Device cameras of the not-too-distant future will be able to project images in three dimensions, it sounds like the stuff of science fiction right!? A team of physicists at the Australian National University – ANU – believe they are on the verge of making it a reality :: Read the full article »»»»
According to results of new research by Australian scientists from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology – RMIT – self-powered electronics have come one step closer to reality. RMIT researchers have successfully measured a piezoelectric film’s capacity for turning mechanical pressure into electricity. It may sound like an idea from the realm of science fiction, the discovery could eventually allow laptops to be powered through their typing.
“The concept of energy harvesting using piezoelectric nanomaterials has been demonstrated but the realisation of these structures can be complex and they are poorly suited to mass fabrication” said RMIT’s Dr. Bhaskaran. Read the full article »»»»
