3D graphene to replace platinum in dye-sensitized solar apps? Dye-sensitized solar cells are thin, flexible, easy to make, and efficient. However, they use platinum, and, at $1,500 an ounce, the cost of the precious metal is significant even in the small quantities used in dye-sensitized cells. Now researchers at Michigan Technological University, Houghton, have developed…

‘Poisoning’ increases magnesium corrosion resistance Scientists have found a way to dramatically increase the corrosion resistance of magnesium: adding arsenic. The lightest structural metal, magnesium has many potential industrial applications but is limited by poor corrosion resistance. A group of researchers from Australia’s Monash University and Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, and the University…
