Microgrid for a Future Lunar Base

Microgrid for a Future Lunar Base

NASA's plan for its concept Artemis lunar base is that it will serve as a technology proving ground for the eventual human exploration of Mars. The base camp concept consists of a habitation unit — complete with room for up to four astronauts — as well as the potential for separate mining and fuel processing. Early Artemis missions will include short stays at the base camp with the goal to build up to stays of two months at a time.

Highly Efficient Large-Area Perovskite For Next Generation Displays

Highly Efficient Large-Area Perovskite For Next Generation Displays

Metal halide perovskites have very narrow spectral emission, excellent color purity, low material cost, and wide and easy color-tunability. Based on these advantages, perovskites are considered as a promising high color purity light emitter which can replace the conventional organic and inorganic quantum dot light emitters in displays and solid-state lighting technologies.
