High-temperature heat exchangers could reduce the amount of fuel needed to power many industrial processes, reducing costs and improving energy efficiency along the way. But first, researchers need to find the best way to create those high-temperature, high-pressure, efficient, and compact heat exchangers.

Solar panels, true to their name, don’t technically work at night. But a California researcher claims he’s found a way to keep them generating power long after the sun sets.
Jeremy Munday, a professor in electrical and computer engineering at the University of California – Davis, is working on a panel prototype he says could do just that.
