Why a Human Egg Is 10 Million Times the Volume of a Sperm Cell

In most living animals, egg cells are vastly larger than sperm cells. In humans, for example, a single egg is 10 million times the volume of a sperm cell. In a new study, Northwestern Engineering researchers found that competition and natural selection drove this curious size discrepancy. Using mathematical modeling, the researchers considered a time […]

New Research Demonstrates Great Promise for Improving Solar Cell Efficiency

Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites have already demonstrated very high photovoltaic efficiencies of greater than 25%. The prevailing wisdom in the field is that the organic (carbon- and hydrogen-containing) molecules in the material are crucial to achieving this impressive performance because they are believed to suppress defect-assisted carrier recombination. New research in the UC Santa Barbara materials […]
