Heat-resistant nanotechnology materials could vastly improve solar cell efficiency
Stanford University via Nanowerk News
Scientists have created a heat-resistant thermal emitter that could significantly improve the efficiency of solar cells. The novel component is designed to convert heat from the sun into infrared light, which can then be absorbed by solar cells to make electricity — a technology known as thermophotovoltaics. Unlike earlier prototypes that fell apart at temperatures below 2,200 degrees, the new thermal emitter remains stable at temperatures as high as 2,500 degrees.

Q-and-A: Huawei executive on cybersecurity
The Wall Street Journal
Cybersecurity is a tricky issue — perhaps China's Huawei Technologies Co. knows that better than anyone else. As the world's second-largest supplier of telecommunications network equipment, Huawei plays a part in the technology industry's efforts to ensure network security around the world. But last year, some U.S. lawmakers called Huawei a potential national security threat and recommended that U.S. telecom carriers avoid using the Chinese firm's equipment. Huawei denied the allegations, but the company's equipment has been effectively shut out of the U.S. market.
