E&T describes sixteen most common metals.
E&T on how nanoporous materials, notable metals and metal oxides, can be used to store energy.
Key metals used in electronics are extracted from war-torn regions of the Democratic Republic of Congo. E&T finds out what is being done to stop this evil trade in conflict metals.
Forget the hype - budgets cuts are defining TV technology.
In this E&T metal special we look at everything from mining it (on land and at sea) to welding it; investing in metals and we compile the hall of fame for - you guessed it metals. For some variety we’ve thrown in new power generation techniques; 3D TV; Smartphones and the latest apps to go on them. All of this plus the usuals - including the latest industry news, analysis and your letters.
Technology and private-sector funding will drive progress towards the UN's ambitious development goals.
Controlling airborne wind turbines remains the greatest challenge to the technology becoming widely accepted.
Software tools have appeared that enable IT managers to better control energy usage across the IT estate.
A radical approach to managing large organisations that literally turns received wisdom on its head could be what we've been looking for. E&T reads an important new book on management theory'.
Thin-film technology has propelled one supplier past silicon solar cell makers. But will the rarity of the raw materials bring an early end for the upstarts of PV?
Nanotechnology could soon be making generators smaller and more efficient, reports E&T.
E&T looks at National Instruments new version of Labview while we also compare mobile office apps for smartphone operating systems such as Apple, Microsoft, and Android.
E-commerce market growth: what kinds of job-change opportunities is it creating for IT professionals?
How smartphones are reshaping our lives, homes, relationships, health, transport, entertainment and more.
Welding has become a high-technology process that needs sophisticated procedures, strong technical backup and a new way of thinking, as E&T discovers.
Half metals and other new materials hold the key to future semiconductor scaling.
With shortages of essential metals predicted, E&T discovers that the mining industry is turning to bacteria in its quest to make use of lower-grade ores, and even to extract metals from century-old mining waste.
Zinc, copper, silver and gold await the deep sea miners.
One of the surest signs we are in recession is that the markets are awash with investors pumping their money into things rather than concepts. Precious metals have never been a safer bet. Especially gold. E&T reports.
Amateur radio enthusiasts around the world will join in a special event this month to mark a double centenary in the history of wireless communications.
