Even in today’s age of medical technology, it is still necessary for people to see their doctors at least once a year for a check up and to have specific screenings done for particular diseases that are common at a certain age. For example, it is recommended that all women begin having yearly mammograms done once they reach the age of thirty, or perhaps even sooner for those who have a history of breast cancer in the family. However, it is becoming increasingly possible that we will soon be able to be alerted by our own bodies when (more…)

 Nanotech and the Future of Photovoltaics

 Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ Aug 2nd, 2013

Nanotechnology promises a great future in photovoltaics, particularly when it comes to solar power. Nanotechnology can be used to create materials that absorb solar radiation very efficiently and convert it into usable electricity on any scale. Whether it is a small solar powered battery or a solar panel, nanotechnology holds the key to making solar energy available to the mainstream market.

First of all, nanotechnology can make it easy for solar energy companies to build efficient and cost effective solar panel farms that deliver electricity to millions of customers. The whole challenge to generating (more…)
