Carbon nanotube device channels heat into light

Texas team creates heat recovery system that converts infra-red into narrow band light Wasted heat is a problem in many industrial sectors. For some, generating heat costs money, and if it’s allowed to leak out of systems then that impacts on profitability. For other sectors, it’s simply a lost opportunity. In solar energy, for example, […] The post Heat recovery device can boost efficiency of solar energy systems appeared first on The Engineer.
