Ultra-high efficiency, Perovskite tandem solar cells promise solving the world energy crisis and secure energy for military

Increasing energy demand, environmental issues and limited availability of fossil fuels are demanding the research on sustainable and renewable energy resources. The sun is ultimate source to accomplish clean energy demand and photovoltaics, also known as solar PV, have been growing exponentially to harness it. The global solar photovoltaics (PV) …

Dual-Fuel, Electric+ (DFE+) and Dual fuel diesel electric propulsion systems(DFE)

Engines that can operate using a mixture of two different fuels are called dual-fuel engines. Frequently, diesel and natural gas fuels are used together within dual-fuel engines. Often, dual-fuel engines that mix diesel and natural gas can also operate using diesel fuel only if the natural gas is temporarily unavailable. …

Hybrid controllable solid propulsion thruster technology for next generation launch-vehicles and missiles

The function of the propulsion system is to produce thrust, which is the force that moves a rocket through air and space. Different propulsion systems generate thrust in different ways, but always through some application of Newton’s third law of motion. In any propulsion system, a working fluid is accelerated …

Navies launch Hybrid and full Electric propulsion for warships and submarines enabling fuel efficiency and stealthy operations in warfare

Marine propulsion is the mechanism or system used to generate thrust to move a a naval vessel across water. At present, 90% of the sea-going naval ship are diesel-powered. There are numerous benefits to electric motor propulsion including that it’s quieter, more efficient at lower speeds and less smelly. It’s …

Optical Fiber Network Technologies enabling terabit per second optical fiber networks for 5G, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH)

An optical network is a communication system that uses light signals, instead of electronic ones, to send information between two or more points. The points could be computers in an office, large urban centers or even nations in the global telecommunications system. These include limited range local-area networks (LAN) or wide-area …

ARPA-E Mission is to enhance the economic and energy security of the United States through the development of energy technologies

ARPA-E, or Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy is a United States government agency tasked with promoting and funding research and development of advanced energy technologies. The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) advances high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too early for private-sector investment. ARPA-E awardees are unique because they are developing …

Automotive Alternative Propulsion Market

Currently, most vehicles rely on internal combustion engines for locomotion; however, a significant shift toward partial and complete electrification is likely to emerge as an alternative propulsion system for vehicles. An internal combustion engine system is highly cost-effective and hence, its usage is higher than other propulsion systems. Being a …

Ramjet Powered Artillery Round can penetrate anti-access/area denial networks

One of the major lessons from Ukraine’s artillery war is that the side that can shoot farthest dominates the battlefield.  According to the report, Russian howitzers are expending 20,000 shells daily on average, compared to 6,000 fired by Ukraine. The ratio for rocket artillery and ballistic-missile launches is even worse. …

Quantum Thermal Transistor

The control of electric currents in solids is at the origin of modern electronics which has revolutionised our daily life. The diode and the transistor introduced by Braun  and Bardeen and Brattain  are undoubtedly the corner stones of modern information technologies. Such devices allow for rectifying, switching, modulating, and even …
