  1. Nanoflowers Promise Energy Storage, Solar CellsResearchers from North Carolina State Univ. have created flower-like structures out of germanium sulfide (GeS) – a semiconductor material – that have extremely thin petals with an enormous surface area. The GeS flower holds promise for next-generation energy storage devices and solar cells.“Creating these GeS nanoflowers is exciting because it gives us a huge surface area in a small amount of space,” says Linyou Cao, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering at NC State and co-author of a paper on the research. “This could significantly increase the capacity of lithium-ion batteries, for instance, since the thinner structure with larger surface area can hold more lithium ions. By the same token, this GeS flower structure could lead to increased capacity for supercapacitors, which are also used for energy storage.”Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2012/10/nanoflowers-promise-energy-storage-solar-cells
