Podcast – Solar Cells: The Science of Solar Energy

In today's podcast, we're going to look at the science of solar energy with solar cells. A solar cell, also called a photovoltaic cell or PV, is the basic building block of a solar power system. It's made up of semiconductor materials that convert sunlight into electricity. But how does it all work? And what role does boron play in solar cells?

Boron in Traction Motors

Boron in traction motors – Smarter, better, cheaper, faster — those words are the mantra of today’s global economy. As organizations seek to streamline operations and do more with less, they increasingly focus on advanced logistics vehicles and mobile robots to help get the job done. From smart warehousing in retail to materials handling in manufacturing to telepresence robots in healthcare, robotic vehicles constitute a fast-growing technology sector.

Boron in Neutron Capture for Nuclear Power Safety

Nuclear power is a controversial topic. Many want to abolish it entirely. And just as many believe that the benefits of nuclear power outweigh its risks. But in any case, there can be no denying that the safety of nuclear reactors is paramount for both sides of the...

Boron and Energy Management Systems

Boron - Energy Management

Advanced energy is a concept that has been around for centuries. It is the idea of using less fuel to do more work. Energy management systems using new minerals such as boron are becoming an integral part of advanced energy. They help minimize power generation costs, power loss, and environmental effects by optimizing system efficiency. Advanced Energy Management Systems are designed to maximize energy efficiency to reduce your company's carbon footprint and increase profitability. What is Advanced Energy? Nowadays, companies are striving to become more sustainable and energy-efficient....

Hypersonic Flight Made Possible with Boron

Boron - Hypersonic Fuel

What Is Hypersonic Flight? Hypersonic flight is a flight through the atmosphere below about 90 km at speeds ranging between Mach 5-10, a speed where dissociation of air begins to become significant and high heat loads exist. As an aircraft moves through the air, the air molecules near the aircraft are disturbed and move around the aircraft. Exactly how the air reacts to the aircraft depends upon the ratio of the speed of the aircraft to the speed of sound through the air. Because of the importance of this speed ratio, aerodynamicists have designated it with a special parameter called the...

Boron and Infrared Rays: Applications in Energy Efficiency

Boron Solar Power Semiconductor

It is an interesting element. It has a very low melting point, and it does not conduct electricity well. There are so many properties of Boron that make it a great material for building solar panels with. This blog post discusses the applications of Boron in infrared rays absorption and how this is useful to increase energy efficiency. Boron absorbs infrared rays It has three different absorption peaks for infrared rays. The first and second are at wavelengths of about 12 microns, while the third is around 19 microns. This means that it absorbs both long-wave radiation and short-wave...

Nuclear power is a controversial topic. Many want to abolish it entirely. And just as many believe that the benefits of nuclear power outweigh its risks. But in any case, there can be no denying that the safety of nuclear reactors is paramount for both sides of the argument. That is why we're going to take a closer look at boron today. It is one of the most important materials in neutron capture for nuclear power safety. Boron: neutron capture for nuclear power safety Firstly, It is a non-metal that has no electrons. This makes it an excellent neutron capture agent for nuclear power...
