Rice engineers use their carbon nanotube films to create a device to recycle waste heat. The device could enhance solar cell output and increase the efficiency of industrial waste-heat recovery.
OLED screens degrade with use (particularly the blue cell pixels), and monitors endure more continuous use than phone or TV screens. #whoknew
