Tiny Solar Device Rapidly Disinfects Water With Nanoflakes & “Eager Electrons”

A tiny device, half the size of a postage stamp, which can rapidly disinfect water with solar energy, has been developed by researchers at Stanford University and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. While the nanostructured device has only been tested with small amounts of water, and on three strains of bacteria, the little gadget shows promise in the quest for affordable and effective low-power water purification solutions.

This gadget, because it’s small and made from a “cheap and easy to make” material, molybdenum disulfide, could eventually be a viable solution for point-of-use water disinfection, either in the developing world or for emergency situations.
