Scientists have discovered that by altering the shape of the surface area of each particle where it presses against the next, it is possible to change how the energy moves. While this finding is yet to be demonstrated experimentally, Sen said that "mathematically, it’s correct. We have proven it."
Aritificial particles have been designed to control the transfer of energy, and by so doing can store and package, what would have been waste energy, and make it usable power. Read the whole article at Science Daily.
