The innovative hydrogen sensor for cars

The innovative hydrogen sensor for cars

17. Aug. 2015 • Fyzikálne vedy

Experimental physicists from the Comenius University in Bratislava have developed an innovative semiconducting hydrogen detector with high sensitivity that works at room temperature. Its importance is demonstrated by the fact that hydrogen propulsion is in the viewfinder of the world’s major car companies and hydrogen is considered the fuel of the future. It is exactly this developed sensor Read more

How many hamburgers does a car consume per 100 km?

31. Jul. 2015 • Fyzikálne vedy

Imagine that fuel used by cars would be hamburgers. To cover a distance of 100 km, one would have to “refuel” up to 30 kg. To cover a distance of 100 km, your car would need to consume approximately 30 kg of hamburgers. That is quite a lot, because an ordinary car needs only 6,5 liters of gasoline to cover the same distance (4,8 kg). Gasoline, as a fuel, is a highly concentrated source of Read more

The unique hydrogen sensor

22. Jul. 2015 • Fyzikálne vedy

Group of prof. Plecenik from the Department of Experimental Physics has developed a unique hydrogen sensor, useful for example in the automotive industry. The study was published in the journal Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical. In anticipation of a wider use of hydrogen as ecological fuel for example in the car industry, there is a need for simple and reliable system for detecting the presence Read more

Laser has 55 years

01. May. 2015 • Fyzikálne vedy

Laser was first introduced to the public in May, 55 years ago. Since then, it has been inseparably linked with developments in science and technology. In addition to laboratories, it is increasingly finding wider application even in practical daily life. ”Our century will depend on photonics just like the 20th century depended on electronics.” The first laser was built at a time of massive Read more
