Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences researchers have demonstrated a new organic molecule that outlives and outperforms its predecessors, offering the longest-lasting high-performance organic flow battery to date. Nicknamed the Methuselah quinone – after the longest-lived Biblical figure – this molecule could usefully store and release energy many tens of thousands […]

Stanford University researchers have developed a new type of flow battery involving a liquid metal that more than doubled the maximum voltage of conventional flow batteries and could lead to affordable storage of renewable power. The new combination of materials developed by Stanford researchers may aid in developing a rechargeable battery able to store the […]

University of Alberta scientists have created the most dense, solid-state memory in history that could soon exceed the capabilities of current hard drives by 1,000 times. The new technique leads to the densest solid-state memory ever created. Roshan Achal, PhD student in Department of Physics and lead author on the new research said, “Essentially, you […]

The Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory has published an article describing a simulation of the mechanism that eliminates sawtooth instabilities in fusion plasmas. Sawtooth swings, the up-and-down ripples found in everything from stock prices on Wall Street to ocean waves, occur periodically in the temperature and density of the plasma that fuels fusion […]

University of Maryland researchers have figured out how to increase a rechargeable battery’s capacity by using aggressive electrodes. They stabilizing these potentially dangerous electrode materials with a highly-fluorinated electrolyte. The success of electric car batteries depends on the miles that can be driven on a single charge, but the current crop of lithium-ion batteries are […]
