A University of Bristol team of physicists and chemists have grown a man-made diamond that when placed in a radioactive field, is able to generate a small electrical current. The new technology is a development that uses nuclear waste to generate electricity in a nuclear-powered battery. The development could solve some of the problems of […]






Could a glow-in-the-dark dye be the next advancement in energy storage technology? University at Buffalo scientists think so. They have identified a fluorescent dye called BODIPY as an ideal material for stockpiling energy in rechargeable, liquid-based batteries that could one day power cars and homes. BODIPY – short for boron-dipyrromethene – shines brightly in the […]






A Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) team of researchers claims to have made yet another step towards finding a solution to accelerate the commercialization of silicon anode for lithium-ion batteries. A new approach developed by a team of researchers, led by Prof. Jaephil Cho (School of Energy and Chemical Engineering) could hold […]






The National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) researchers have developed an anode material for lithium-ion rechargeable batteries by forming nanoparticles made of silicon metal composites on metal substrates. The resulting anode material has a high capacity – almost twice as high as conventional materials – and a long cycling life. The results could lead to […]






Scientists from the Leibniz Institute for Interactive Materials (DWI), RWTH Aachen University and Hanyang University in Seoul have significantly improved a key component for the development of Redox Flow battery energy storage systems. The team has developed a hydrophobic membrane that keeps its barrier functions in place as it does not swell in water. The […]
