The Underlying Chemistry of Piezo Materials Liam Critchley
The electrical properties of both piezoelectric and piezoresistive materials change when subjected to mechanical deformation. Here, we show how and why these electrical changes are due to changes within the crystal structure at the atomic level and the chemistry involved with these changes.

Harnessing Energy with Nanogenerators Liam Critchley
Different nanogenerators can generate enough electricity to power a small device through kinetic movements within the device, or by harvesting thermal energy. Even though the amount of electricity generated is small, it is enough for many small remote monitoring devices.

How Nanotechnology Has Helped to Realize Flexible and Wearable Electronics Liam Critchley
Flexible and wearable electronics are rapidly growing industries. The development and growth of these devices are due to the benefits and specific properties of the nanomaterials that are commonly used within these devices. Here we look at why nanomaterials are used in these electronic devices.

The Chemistry of Energy Storage Systems Liam Critchley
Energy storage devices are serving an increasingly wide range of applications. Their recent performance improvements are driving this growth in popularity. The basic function and any performance enhancements are due to chemistry, especially electrochemistry. In this blog, we will detail why.

Understanding the Chemistry of Semiconductor Junctions Liam Critchley
Chemistry plays a major part in why semiconductor materials behave the way they do, and why current can flow through a p-n semiconducting junction. Here, we discuss what effect chemistry has on these junctions, including some of the mechanistic variations that exist in electronics today.

A Breakthrough for Increasing Organic Solar Cell Conductivity Mouser Staff
An accidental discovery at the University of Michigan has turned the sleepy world of organic solar cells upside down. It turns out that electrons can go farther in organic materials, making these materials a far more efficient conduit of electrical current.

Nano, Nano: Shrinking Power Consumption Down in Analog Power Design Paul Golata
Using their analog expertise, ROHM Semiconductor has developed a new product line, the Nano Series, to achieve more compact parts that require less energy to operate.

PWM or MPPT: Which Controller is Right for Your Solar PV System? Alex Misiti
In battery-tied photovoltaic (PV) arrays, charge controllers are a critical component that can drastically impact the operation and overall cost of the system.
