Tiny redox flow battery supplies electronic components with energy, dissipates heat

Researchers at ETH Zurich and IBM Research Zurich have built a tiny redox flow battery. This means that future computer chip stacks in which individual chips are stacked like pancakes to save space and energy could be supplied with electrical power and cooled at the same time by such integrated flow batteries. In a flow battery, an electrochemical reaction is used to produce electricity out of two liquid electrolytes, which are pumped to the battery cell from outside via a closed electrolyte loop.

Energy harvesting for a greener environment

Energy Harvesting (EH) is the process of electronically capturing and accumulating energy from a variety of energy sources deemed wasted or otherwise said to be unusable for any practical purpose. Energy harvesting, or energy scavenging as the process is sometimes referred to, is associated with capturing residual energy as a by-product of a natural environmental phenomenon or industrial process and is therefore considered free-energy. » Read More
