POSTECH Professor Byoungwoo Kang’s research team has uncovered a new Li-ion battery electrode material that can achieve high-energy density and high power capability per volume without reducing particle size. With Tesla in the lead, the electric vehicle market is growing around the world. Unlike conventional cars that use internal combustion engines, electric cars are commonly […]

University of Rochester engineers and physicists have created a material that is superconducting at room temperature. The carbonaceous sulfur hydride exhibited superconductivity at about 58 degrees Fahrenheit and a pressure of about 39 million psi. This is the first time that superconducting material has been observed at room temperatures. Featured as the cover story in […]

A joint research team from POSTECH and Korea University has demonstrated a daytime radiative cooling material which exhibits lower temperatures than its surroundings even during the day. Now that autumn is here, there is a large temperature gap between day and night. This is due to the temperature inversion caused by radiative cooling on the […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… UCLA scientists have developed nanoscale copper wires with specially shaped surfaces to catalyze a chemical reaction that reduces CO2 gas emissions  recycling  the CO2 while generating ethylene – a valuable chemical simultaneously. The Caltech and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering team demonstrated the new catalyst to efficiently convert carbon dioxide into ethylene, which […]

Stanford University researchers have designed a new model that offers a way to predict the condition of a battery’s internal systems in real-time with far more accuracy than existing tools. In electric cars, the technology could improve driving range estimates and prolong battery life. The reality is batteries fade as they age, slowly losing power […]
