Super cheap earth element to advance new battery tech to the industry

21-Sep-2018

Most of today's batteries are made up of rare lithium mined from the mountains of South America. If the world depletes this source, then battery production could stagnate. Sodium is a very cheap and earth-abundant alternative to using lithium-ion batteries that is also known to turn purple and ...

Using hydrogen, methane and methanol to reduce CO2 emissions

FAU is coordinating a project for using carbon dioxide efficiently and internally in steelworks

21-Sep-2018

Six percent of the world's CO2 emissions are generated by steel production. The use of renewable energy sources in the steel industry is thus very important for responding to climate change. For this reason, researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have now initiated ...

Increased the performance and lifetime of lithium batteries in renewable energy facilities

20-Sep-2018

"The installing of renewable energy sources is becoming increasingly important across the world, and this trend is expected to continue over the coming years," explained Alberto Berrueta-Irigoyen, researcher at the NUP/UPNA's Institute of Smart Cities (ISC). "Renewable technology has in recent ...

Scientists use artificial neural networks to predict new stable materials

20-Sep-2018

Artificial neural networks--algorithms inspired by connections in the brain--have "learned" to perform a variety of tasks, from pedestrian detection in self-driving cars, to analyzing medical images, to translating languages. Now, researchers at the University of California San Diego are training ...

Greater than the sum of its parts

20-Sep-2018

When it comes to designing and optimizing mechanical systems, scientists understand the physical laws surrounding them well enough to create computer models that can predict their properties and behavior. However, scientists who are working to design better electrochemical systems, such as ...

Household cleaning products may contribute to kids' overweight by altering their gut microbiota

19-Sep-2018

Commonly used household cleaners could be making children overweight by altering their gut microbiota, suggests a Canadian study published in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal) . The study analyzed the gut flora of 757 infants from the general population at age 3-4 months and weight at ...

X-rays uncover a hidden property that leads to failure in a lithium-ion battery material

Experiments at SLAC and Berkeley Lab uproot long-held assumptions and will inform future battery design

19-Sep-2018

Over the past three decades, lithium-ion batteries, rechargeable batteries that move lithium ions back and forth to charge and discharge, have enabled smaller devices that juice up faster and last longer. Now, X-ray experiments at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory ...

World speed record for polymer simulations shattered by over a hundred-fold

18-Sep-2018

From a humble plastic bag to ultra-light airplane wings - polymers are everywhere. These molecules are long chains of atoms that are chemically joined to play many roles that we all love (organic photovoltaics) and hate (indestructible plastic pollution). Polymers are useful in liquid form as ...

How a tetrahedral substance can be more symmetrical than a spherical atom: A new type of symmetry

18-Sep-2018

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology have theoretically demonstrated that special tetrahedron nanostructures composed of certain metals have a higher degree of symmetry than the geometrical symmetry of spherical atoms. Nanomaterials with unique and unprecedented electrical and magnetic ...

Russian and German physicists developed a mathematical model of trapped atoms and ions

18-Sep-2018

It is difficult to study processes at the level of individual atoms and ions at room temperature due to their thermal motion. It causes disturbance that is the reason for considerable inaccuracy of measurements. The main cause of observation errors is the Doppler effect. However, if the atoms are ...
