Pixel-by-pixel analysis yields insights into lithium-ion batteries
In a first, researchers have observed how lithium ions flow through a battery interface, which could help optimize the material’s design
20-Sep-2023 - By mining data from X-ray images, researchers at MIT, Stanford University, SLAC National Accelerator, and the Toyota Research Institute have made significant new discoveries about the reactivity of lithium iron phosphate, a material used in batteries for electric cars and in other rechargeable ...
Observing nanoparticles with unprecedented precision
Illuminated: Researchers investigate new physical phenomena on the nanoscale with microstructured fibers
15-Sep-2023 - Researchers at Leibniz IPHT have succeeded in contributing to significant advances in deciphering tiny nanoobjects: Using special optical fibers, they identified a new optical mode that enables uniform illumination along the entire length of the fiber, and determined the resolution limit of ...
Benchtop NMR spectroscopy can accurately analyse pyrolysis oils
More accessible analysis could help develop the potential of bio-oils as an alternative to fossil fuels
12-Sep-2023 - A team of researchers at Aston University has demonstrated that benchtop spectrometers are capable of analysing pyrolysis bio-oils just as well as far more expensive, high-field spectrometers. Bio-oils resulting from the intense heating (pyrolysis) of industrial or agricultural by-products, are ...
Structure formation during freeze casting filmed in 3D and real time
Freeze-cast materials can be used for many applications: as battery electrodes, catalyst materials or in biomedicine
08-Sep-2023 - Freeze casting processes can be used to produce highly porous and hierarchically structured materials that have a large surface area. They are suitable for a wide variety of applications, as electrodes for batteries, catalyst materials or in biomedicine. Now a team led by Prof. Ulrike G. K. ...
Virtual lab calculates optimal lubricant composition
Extending lubricant lifespan: Sensor system developed for real-time monitoring
06-Sep-2023 - Mechanical bearings and gearboxes — like those used in electric vehicles and wind farms — are often treated with lubricants to avoid friction and wear. However, these components might be under voltage. This would impair the effectiveness of the lubricants to such a degree that the tribological ...
Graphene discovery could help generate hydrogen cheaply and sustainably
Microscopic insights into electrochemical interfaces
29-Aug-2023 - Researchers from The University of Warwick and the University of Manchester have finally solved the long-standing puzzle of why graphene is so much more permeable to protons than expected by theory. A decade ago, scientists at The University of Manchester demonstrated that graphene is permeable ...
Microscopic Transformations of Electrocatalyst Surfaces
Researchers reveal the disordering of copper surfaces during catalysis
24-Aug-2023 - Developing technologies that can convert CO2 into synthetic fuels and base chemicals is of key importance for reaching the climate goals. The electrochemical reduction of CO2 at copper electrodes allows to do this directly with electric power from renewable sources which could be used for the ...
