Scientists invented a hyperbolic thermal effect that can absorb intense heat, compress it, and emit it as narrow light that can be converted into electricity. The efficiency of such a system for converting heat to electricity can reach 80% and increase the standard characteristics of solar panels… Infrared radiation not only delivers heat from the Sun to the planet, but also comes from all hot bodies. However, the problem is that it is broadband so it is inefficient to convert it to electricity. Heat Trap: A New Way to Generate Electricity Using Nanotechnology? Scientists at Rice University were looking for new ways to convert heat into electricity using turbines, steam or some kind of liquid, and the final efficiency of which would not be inferior to existing systems. A simple method for making films from aligned carbon nanotubes was developed, the team decided to test the possibility of their use for converting…
