Developed at MIT’s Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies, Mesodyne’s technology works by burning fuel in a microcombustor to heat a photonic crystal thermal emitter to incandescence, leading to infrared radiation which drives specialized photovoltaic cells to generate electricity. Mesodyne delivers watts of electricity at the fuel flow of a lighter in the palm of your hand.
