Solar power technology may kill cancer cells

Researchers have discovered a way to detect and attack cancer cells using technology traditionally reserved for solar power. The results, published in the Scientific Reports, showcases dramatic improvements in light-activated fluorescent dyes for disease diagnosis, image-guided surgery, and site-specific tumour treatment. “We’ve tested this concept in breast, lung cancer and skin cancer cell lines and […]

Transparent solar cells could be massive power source: study

Transparent solar materials applied to windows can harvest as much energy from invisible light waves as bigger, bulkier rooftop solar units, scientists say. Widespread use of such highly transparent solar applications, together with the rooftop units, could drastically reduce the use of fossil fuels. “Highly transparent solar cells represent the wave of the future for […]
