    • Powering lasers through heat (Phys.org)- November 13, 2012
    • In micro electronics heat often causes problems and engineers have to put a lot of technical effort into cooling, for example micro chips, to dissipate heat that is generated during operation. Austrian physicists have now suggested a concept for a laser that could be powered by heat. This idea may open a completely new way for cooling microchips. More...
    • ARENA rejects Solar Dawn funding, trims large scale PV applicants (RenewEconomy)- November 12, 2012
    • The newly established Australian Renewable Energy Agency says it will not provide any funding support for the $1.2 billion Solar Dawn solar thermal project in Queensland, effectively ending the last hope of development of what would have been Australia ... More...
    • Recycling Wasted Heat and Power Could Clear the Air (Forbes)- October 29, 2012
    • ArcelorMittal Steel USA is finding an uncommon way to beat the competition: It is cutting energy consumption at one of its steel plants in Chicago by re-using heat to make electricity. It says that it is saving $100 million a year by creating an extra ... More...
    • Scientists Use Molecular Layers to Study Nanoscale Heat Transfer (Outcome Magazine (blog))- October 29, 2012
    • It is at the interface between the gold film and the SAM, Losego says, where nanoscale heat flow is characterized. "Changing the chemical groups that are in contact with the gold layer allows us to see how different bonds affect heat transfer," he adds. More...
