The Weird New Solid That’s Actually A Liquid

Cool anything down enough, and it becomes a crystal solid, according to traditional physics theories. But that might not always be so, and two scientists think they have found cases where a liquid-like state is more stable than the solid crystal, in a reversal of the norm. For the experiment, detailed in August 4th issue of the…

New thermocell could harvest ‘waste heat’ from power stations and even vehicle exhaust pipes

A small team of Monash University researchers working under the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) has developed an ionic liquid-based thermocell. Thermocell technology is based on harnessing the thermal energy from the difference in temperature between two surfaces and converting that energy into electricity. http://m.phys.org/news/2013-07-thermocell-harvest.html Related articles New Technology Could Turn Wasted Heat…
