College of southern California scientists show us a more efficient use of graphene solar panels
Can you imagine people powering their cellphone or music/video device while jogging under the sun?
A University of Southern California team has produced flexible transparent carbon atom films that may have great potential for a new breed of solar cells.
Inside a paper recently published in the journal ACS Nano, researchers stated that organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells have been proposed as a means to achieve cheap energy due to their ease of manufacture, light-weight, and compatibility with flexible substrates.
This work indicates that graphene, an extremely conductive and highly transparent type of carbon made up of atoms-thick sheets of carbon atoms, has high potential to fill this role.
Many were disappointed when the Galaxy S Series was announced, and there was no Video-Out option. Then the news slowly trickled out that the Galaxy S supports Video-Out via its 3.5mm headphone jack (as also seen with the Droid Incredible and Droid Eris).

Well, today Samsung leaked the news that the Galaxy S line fully supports HDMI through its microUSB port. That means for you Vibrant and Captivate owners, and those considering the Epic 4G and Fascinate, will soon have the ability to play high definition video via a microUSB-to-HDMI cable. Although the special cable is not available yet, Samsung promises it is coming soon.
