The new type of ice is closer to liquid water than any other known ice, and could rewrite our understanding of water and its many anomalies
Researchers at UCL and the University of Cambridge have discovered a new type of ice that more closely resembles liquid water than any other known ices and that may rewrite our understanding of water and its many anomalies. The newly discovered ice is amorphous - that is, its molecules are in a ...
“What’s so special about this system is the versatility and tuneability”
Researchers have developed a system that can transform plastic waste and greenhouse gases into sustainable fuels and other valuable products – using just the energy from the Sun. The researchers, from the University of Cambridge, developed the system, which can convert two waste streams into two ...
Researchers tracked the movement of lithium ions inside a promising new battery material
Researchers have found that the irregular movement of lithium ions in next-generation battery materials could be reducing their capacity and hindering their performance. The team, led by the University of Cambridge, tracked the movement of lithium ions inside a promising new battery material in ...
The researchers are now working with battery manufacturers to accelerate the development of safer, longer lasting next-generation batteries
Researchers have developed a machine learning algorithm that could help reduce charging times and prolong battery life in electric vehicles by predicting how different driving patterns affect battery performance, improving safety and reliability. The researchers, from the University of Cambridge, ...
Spin-out company formed
Engineers have created intelligent 3D printers that can quickly detect and correct errors, even in previously unseen designs, or unfamiliar materials like ketchup and mayonnaise, by learning from the experiences of other machines. The engineers, from the University of Cambridge, developed a ...
Unlocking possible new ways to make light act powerfully and drive chemical transformations
By trapping light into tiny gaps only a few atoms wide, a team from the NanoPhotonics Centre has magnified optical forces a thousand-fold, strong enough to force atoms into positions that drive chemical reactions more efficiently. “We found a new way to beef up the forces from light, enough to ...
"Lithium is just like an unruly child”
For many people, battery-powered electronic devices like cell phones, laptops, and even electric vehicles, are now a necessity. However, these devices typically require charging at least once a day. Increasing the length of time between charges requires the development of batteries that can store ...
Algae-powered computing: Scientists create reliable and renewable biological photovoltaic cell
Researchers have used a widespread species of blue-green algae to power a microprocessor continuously for a year - and counting - using nothing but ambient light and water. Their system has potential as a reliable and renewable way to power small devices. The system, comparable in size to an AA ...
materials can detect when they are damaged, take the necessary steps to temporarily heal themselves and then resume work
Researchers have developed self-healing, biodegradable, 3D-printed materials that could be used in the development of realistic artificial hands and other soft robotics applications. The low-cost jelly-like materials, developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge, can sense strain, ...
Combining a series of new microscopy techniques revealed why perovskite materials are seemingly so tolerant of defects in their structure
Researchers from the University of Cambridge haveused a suite of correlative, multimodal microscopy methods to visualise, for the first time, why perovskite materials are seemingly so tolerant of defects in their structure. The most commonly used material for producing solar panels is ...
