There is an urgent need to develop an innovative technology for combined power generation and carbon dioxide sequestration from hydrocarbon fuels to address the increasing CO2 emissions coming from the transportation sector.
Nanomaterials are increasingly playing an active role by either increasing the efficiency of the energy storage and conversion processes or by improving device design and performance.
High-power solid-state laser (YAG lasers) took a quantum leap during the last few years providing higher available laser powers, better beam quality, improved electrical efficiency and reductions in price leading to a new, highly productive welding technique called “Remote Welding”.
