Light may increase performance of fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries

Light makes ions mobile

24-Mar-2022

Lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells and many other devices depend on the high mobility of ions in order to work properly. But there a large number of obstacles to such mobility. A research team led by Jennifer L. M. Rupp of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harry L. Tuller of the ...

Frozen light in graphene

Basis for extremely sensitive infrared and terahertz detectors much smaller than existing ones, with similar absorption efficiency

24-Feb-2022

Scientists from University of Regensburg, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Moscow institute of Physics and Technology, and University of Kansas have discovered abnormally strong light absorption in graphene. The effect arises from the conversion of ordinary electromagnetic waves into ...

Accelerating the discovery of new materials for 3D printing

A new machine-learning system costs less, generates less waste, and can be more innovative than manual discovery methods

19-Oct-2021

The growing popularity of 3D printing for manufacturing all sorts of items, from customized medical devices to affordable homes, has created more demand for new 3D printing materials designed for very specific uses. To cut down on the time it takes to discover these new materials, researchers at ...

International team improves efficiency of liquid metal batteries

Improved electrolyte formulation increase the power efficiency to nearly 100 percent

17-Sep-2021

Climate protection means increasingly turning to renewable energies. But in order to store the energy produced by solar, wind and other regenerative processes, sophisticated systems are required. Today’s storage options are still too expensive and hardly or even impossible to recycle. Scientists ...

Breakthrough in sizing nanoparticles using fluid-filled tubes

Simple mechanical tube key to measuring mass and size of nano-particles simultaneously

31-Aug-2021

The functionality of nanoparticles in a host of applications, including drug delivery and nano-optics, is often dictated by their mass and size. Measuring these properties simultaneously for the same nanoparticle has also been challenging. Now scientists from the University of Melbourne and ...

Physicists create tunable superconductivity in twisted graphene 'nanosandwich'

Structure may reveal conditions needed for high-temperature superconductivity

04-Feb-2021

When two sheets of graphene are stacked atop each other at just the right angle, the layered structure morphs into an unconventional superconductor, allowing electric currents to pass through without resistance or wasted energy. This "magic-angle" transformation in bilayer graphene was observed ...

New electrode design may lead to more powerful batteries

06-Feb-2020

New research by engineers at MIT and elsewhere could lead to batteries that can pack more power per pound and last longer, based on the long-sought goal of using pure lithium metal as one of the battery's two electrodes, the anode. The new electrode concept comes from the laboratory of Ju Li, the ...

Finding the source of chemical reactions

06-Feb-2020

Scientists are constantly searching for the source of things like the origin of the universe, matter or life. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, in a collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and several other universities, ...

New battery gobbles up carbon dioxide

Lithium-based battery could make use of greenhouse gas before it ever gets into the atmosphere

25-Sep-2018

A new type of battery developed by researchers at MIT could be made partly from carbon dioxide captured from power plants. Rather than attempting to convert carbon dioxide to specialized chemicals using metal catalysts, which is currently highly challenging, this battery could continuously ...
