  • Ultracold Quantum Particles Break Classical Symmetry

    Many phenomena of the natural world evidence symmetries in their dynamic evolution which help researchers to better understand a system’s inner mechanism. In quantum physics, however, these symmetries are not always achieved. In laboratory experiments with ultracold lithium atoms, researchers from t more

  • A Close Look at Lithium Batteries

    Batteries with metallic lithium anodes offer enhanced efficiency compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries because of their higher capacity. However, safety concerns and a short lifespan stand in the way. To better analyze the causes of malfunctions and premature failure of such batteries, rese more

  • Key component for batteries of the future

    Fraunhofer IWS scientists headed by Dr. Holger Althues have developed an innovative process for the cost-efficient production of thin lithium anodes made of molten lithium. In the BMBF-funded “MaLiBa” project, the Dresden Institute is working with the companies hpulcas and SGS as well as with scient more

  • Battery Safety (thermal runaway)

    Lithium ion battery technology offers many advantages in portable power application but one major concern is safety – thermal runaway of the device in both normal and abusive situations. In the following article, it will be shown that by means of adi more

  • Battery Cycling

    Lithium Ion is becoming the technology choice for HEV, PHEV, as well as many stationary applications. With such large battery packs it is important to understand how the individual cells and packs will behave in a variety of scenarios. One of the mai more

  • Bearing grease selection

    Rolling-element bearings are used for the precise guidance of moving parts. Frictional losses are extremely small because the bearings rest on rolling elements, enabling very heavy loads to be adsorbed. Rolling-element bearings may be lubricated with more

Group 1 Elements

I wanted to display all the key points about each group of elements, in a way that was both clear and engaging for the pupils – as a consequence, the information presented is relatively basic, so that it’s accessible for as many of the year groups as possible. I also tried to include some informatio more

Why Lithium-Ion Batteries Catch Fire

In this month’s Periodic Graphics in C&EN, we’re looking at the chemistry behind the recent news stories of lithium-ion batteries in some devices catching fire. You can see the full graphic over on the C&EN site. Also, for more lithium battery chemistry, head over to the recent RealTimeChem Week gra more

Developing Advanced Lithium Ion Batteries

Today’s graphic takes a look at the research of Kent Griffith (@kentjgriffith), a PhD student from the University of Cambridge who’s currently looking into developing advanced lithium ion batteries to power our phones, laptops, and more. more
