Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

The power bank is also compatible with Huawei phones that support wireless charging. ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>

Nerve freezing may help fight obesity 25.03.2018

Freezing the vagus nerve helps reduce appetite and helps in the fight against excess weight with moderate and moderate obesity, a group of American scientists found.

Researchers from the Emory University School of Medicine, the State University of New York at Buffalo, and the Pennsylvania State University Medical Center conducted a study of ten patients with grade XNUMX and XNUMX obesity.

Each of them underwent a procedure to freeze the posterior trunk of the vagus nerve, through which hunger signals enter the brain. A needle was inserted into the back of the patients and a certain part of the nerve was frozen using cryogenic argon. After that, for 90 days, scientists observed the condition of people.

According to the results of the study, all participants in the experiment noted a decrease in appetite. Patients' weight decreased by 3,6% and overweight body mass index (BMI) fell by 14%. No complications or side effects were observed after freezing of the vagus nerve. The researchers note that the procedure is safe and produces real results.

"The medical literature shows that the vast majority of weight loss programs fail, especially when people try to reduce food intake. When our stomachs are empty, the body senses this and switches to survival mode in search of food," says lead author David Prologo.

According to the scientist, this study is aimed at reducing the strength of the signal that an empty stomach transmits to the brain.

"We developed this treatment for obese patients of the first and second degree in order to reduce the wasting effect of weight loss," explains Prologo.
