What happens when you expose tellurite glass to femtosecond laser light? That’s the question that Gözden Torun at the Galatea Lab, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, in a collaboration with Tokyo Tech scientists, aimed to answer in her thesis work when she made the discovery. Its a discovery that may one day turn windows into […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers announced a new organic battery material that could offer a more sustainable way to power electric cars. The lithium-ion battery includes a cathode based on organic materials to replace the cobalt or nickel. The reporting paper has been published in ACS Central Science. For now many electric vehicles are […]

The discovery has been published in Materials Today in the paper titled “A sequential dual-passivation strategy for designing stainless steel used above water oxidation.” The research achievements […]

Researchers at Kyushu University, in collaboration with Osaka University and the Fine Ceramics Center, have developed a framework that uses machine learning to speed up the discovery of materials for green energy technology. Using the new approach, the researchers identified and successfully synthesized two new candidate materials for use in solid oxide fuel cells – […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Leicester scientists have made an insight into superlubricity, where surfaces experience extremely low levels of friction. This could benefit future technologies by reducing energy lost to friction by moving parts. As many of us are stepping carefully to avoid a slip and fall in the frosty weather, scientists led by the University […]
