In what could lead to longer battery life in smartphones and produce better TV display screens, researchers at University of Michigan have extended the lifetime of blue organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs).

Smart head-lights that prevent glare, improve vision

US researchers, who include an Indian-origin scientist, have developed a smart head-light that enables drivers to take full advantage of their high beams without fear of blinding oncoming drivers or suffering from the glare that they can be subject to when driving in snow or rain at night.

US company plans solar roads to power entire country

A US company is seeking USD 1 million in crowd-sourced funds for its ambitious plan to turn American roads into giant energy farms that could power the entire country.

Scientists develop thinnest LEDs that are stronger, more energy efficient

Scientists have come up with the thinnest possible LEDs, which they claim are stronger and more energy efficient than the normal ones.
