Researcher of CENTRA UAI develops stretchable light detector with applications in biomedicine, robotics and agriculture

The CENTRA UAI academic, Felipe Larraín, participated in a revolutionary research, who, together with North American researchers, created the first stretchable photodetector, with mechanical properties similar to those of human skin, capable of capturing light and being applied in biomedicine, robotics, security and agriculture, among other areas. The study – highlighted by the prestigious North American journal Science Advances – was developed over three years…

Repair and recertification of silicon photovoltaic panels using additive manufacturing

This project consists of evaluating the health status of photovoltaic panels installed in Chilean territory and contributing to the management of waste from defective panels. This involves the identification of operating cells in waste panels, their disconnection and subsequent reconnection in repaired panels, for subsequent recertification, by printing organic inks with conductive properties based on metallic nanoparticles.

Chile has enormous space to continue innovating in the energy matrix

In this article, published in El Mercurio, the CENTRA UAI researcher, Felipe Larraín, highlights that Chile has been increasing variable renewable generation capacity for several years with solar photovoltaic and wind power plants. However, he assures that the intrinsic variability of resources poses difficulties that encourage innovation. In the short term, battery-based energy storage systems offer an alternative to alleviate transmission congestion, delay investments, arbitrate…
