Researchers at Stanford University and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have found the first direct evidence that a mysterious phase of matter known as the “pseudogap” competes with high-temperature superconductivity. The pseudogap takes electrons from superconducting materials that otherwise might pair up to carry current through a material with 100% efficiency. The […]



A Kansas State University (KSU) engineering team has discovered some of graphene oxide’s important properties that can improve sodium and lithium-ion flexible batteries. The KSU team is the first to show that a flexible paper composed entirely of graphene oxide sheets can charge and discharge with sodium-ions for more than 1,000 cycles. Sodium perchlorate salt […]



2014 has been a good year for the fusion community. For those of us watching LPPFusion, that was named Lawrenceville Plasma Physics or known as Focus Fusion, they made an announcement yesterday that deserves notice. LPPFusion is preparing for a further stage of their experiment, when they switch from using deuterium as a fuel to […]



Over the past few days EEStor and the company holding better than 70 percent of its ownership, Zenncars, have released an independent test of it composition modified barium titanate ultracapacitor powders. The interest is increasing because Intertek Group Plc (“Intertek”) rigorously tested an extensive sampling of EEStor capacitor layers across multiple voltages (250vdc, 450vdc, 700vdc, […]



University of Oregon (UO) researchers have a new method to follow light into nanoparticle photocells in a spectroscopy experiment on photocells that used lead-sulfide quantum dots as photoactive semiconductor material. Its research that should prove to be of enormous consequence. The efficiency of conventional solar cells could be significantly increased from the current limit of […]
