University of Houston (UH) researchers have discovered a new material that has proven an effective anode for acid and alkaline batteries, including emerging aqueous metal-ion batteries. Importantly, the material offers the promise of safe, long-lasting batteries that work across a range of temperatures and is quite low cost. Modern batteries power everything from cars to […]






Stanford University scientists have developed a way to wirelessly deliver electricity to moving objects. The technology could one day charge electric vehicles and personal devices like medical implants and cell phones. The press release makes the point if electric cars could recharge while driving down a highway, it would virtually eliminate concerns about their range […]






Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have made a surprising discovery that could fix lithium-sulfur battery capacity fading. But for the capacity fading, lithium-sulfur batteries have great potential as a low-cost, high-energy, energy storage medium for both vehicle and grid applications. Gao Liu the corresponding author of the paper research paper said, “There’s a lot of demand […]






Swedish researchers at Linköping Universitet have increased the capacity of graphene to store an electrical charge by introducing defects into the perfect surface of graphene on silicon carbide. The result increases our knowledge of how this ultrathin material can be used. The team’s research paper and results have been published in the scientific journal Electrochimica […]






Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie scientists have fabricated a nanomaterial made from nanoparticles of a titanium oxide compound for lithium sulfur battery cathodes. The titanium oxide, Ti4O7 is characterized by an extremely large surface area, and was tested as a cathode material in lithium sulfur batteries. Presently lithium batteries are one of the best […]
