Coming soon: mobile phones with pollution sensors

IISc. team develops highly sensitive low-cost CO sensor How cool would it be to have a mobile phone equipped with a pollution sensor? This could one day become a reality with researchers at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc.) developing a highly sensitive low-cost sensor to detect carbon monoxide levels, small enough to fit intoContinue reading “Coming soon: mobile phones with pollution sensors”

New laser material could make solar energy harvesting more efficient

A new laser material designed by scientists at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) could change the way solar energy is harvested and make solar power generation more efficient. Unlike an ordinary flashlight, lasers can generate an intense, narrow beam of light of a single colour. Professor Ayush Pandey and his team of researchers atContinue reading “New laser material could make solar energy harvesting more efficient”
