Self-cleaning solar panels ditching the dirt IOM3

Feb 01, 2014This cleaning is achieved without water, moving parts or manual labour, and the process is scalable.’ Undoubtedly, the breadth of self-cleaning material development is impressive. However, it will be a long time before self-cleaning does exactly what it says, especially when it comes to the solar panels used on domestic roofs.

News IOM3

Titanium oxide has been used on surfaces such as glass for a number of years to use sunlight to degrade particles and give a self cleaning effect. The same technology has now been applied to wool by Australian and Chinese researchers, meaning that hanging up clothes on a sunny day may be enough to clean dirty garments.

Moth eyes inspire self-cleaning windows IOM3

Mar 02, 2016The self-cleaning windows reduce the amount of light reflected internally in a room to less than 5% compared with the 20-30% achieved by other prototype vanadium dioxide-coated energy-saving windows. This reduction in glare should provide a boost in technology for current smart windows. What could it be used for?

Cleaner, greener ovens IOM3

Self-cleaning ovens. These ovens are coated in a matt black or grey VE, known as catalytic or self-cleaning enamel, which has been available in the industry since the 1960s. The back, sides and roof of the oven are normally coated, but not the base. This is usually a normal groundcoat enamel, from which spills cannot easily be cleaned.

Self-cleaning surfaces Wikipedia

Self-cleaning surfaces are a class of materials with the inherent ability to remove any debris or bacteria from their surfaces in a variety of ways. The self-cleaning functionality of these surfaces are commonly inspired by natural phenomena observed in lotus leaves, gecko feet, and water striders to name a few. The majority of self-cleaning surfaces can be placed into three

A. A. Griffith Medal and Prize Wikipedia

History. The award was established by the Materials Science Club of Great Britain in 1965, two years after its formation in 1963. Modern materials science as an integrated discipline (as distinct from single-material studies such as metallurgy) was in its infancy, and the Materials Science Club was a 'gathering place' for this new field of applied science.

Surfaces that repel water, such as this Oak Ridge National Laboratory offering, are central to the development of self-cleaning solar panels.
