UNL Engineers Demonstrate Solar Cell Material's Vast Potential
January 31, 2015
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln issued the following news release: A promising solar cell material is making big waves for its ability to harness the sun's energy as inexpensively and easily as current silicon-based solar technology. University of Nebraska-Lincoln engineers have discovered that it's even better than previously thought -- at least 3,000 times better. Fine-tuning this material -- a class of compounds with the same crystalline structure known as perovskites -- to better capture energy has advanced rapidly in just a few years. It now rivals silicon's 20 percent energy efficiency with the promise of even greater efficiency. Yet progress into determining what makes it so special has been slow.

Vessel Requirements for Notices of Arrival and Departure, and Automatic Identification System; Federal Register Extracts
January 30, 2015
SUMMARY: Consistent with statutory requirements and provisions, the Coast Guard is expanding the applicability of notice of arrival (NOA) and automatic identification system (AIS) requirements to include more commercial vessels. This final rule amends the applicability of notice of arrival requirements to include additional vessels, sets forth a mandatory method for electronic submission of NOAs, and modifies related reporting content, timeframes, and procedures. This final rule also extends the applicability of AIS requirements beyond Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) areas to all U.S. navigable waters, and requires that additional commercial vessels install and use AIS, consistent with statutory requirements, and in limited cases, the Secretary's discretionary authority. These changes will improve navigation safety, enhance our ability to identify and track vessels, and heighten our overall maritime domain awareness (MDA), thus helping us address threats to maritime transportation safety and security.
