Inequalities in Swedish care for bipolar disorder
(University of Gothenburg) In Sweden, care for bipolar disorder shows inequalities. They are associated both with socioeconomic factors and with gender, according to research from the University of Gothenburg. For instance, lithium -- the treatment deemed to have the most stabilizing effect on the disorder -- is administered to men more often than to women. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Electrical power generation from moderate-temperature radiative thermal sources
Moderate-temperature thermal sources (100° to 400°C) that radiate waste heat are often the by-product of mechanical work, chemical or nuclear reactions, or information processing. We demonstrate conversion of thermal radiation into electrical power using a bipolar grating-coupled complementary metal-oxide-silicon (CMOS) tunnel diode. A two-step photon-assisted tunneling charge pumping mechanism results in separation of charge carriers in pn-junction wells leading to a large open-circuit voltage developed across a load. Electrical power generation from a broadband blackbody thermal source has been experimentally dem...
