Cracking an Age-old Thermodynamic Puzzle

03 Nov 2023 under Focus

Designing a heat engine that can produce maximum power at maximum efficiency is a major challenge. Practical heat engines are limited to a theoretical efficiency called the Carnot limit, which sets a cap on how much heat can be converted to useful work. In a breakthrough, researchers at IISc and JNCASR have devised a novel […]
