A Tohoku University research team has 3D printed a proton exchange membrane, a critical component of batteries, electrochemical capacitors and fuel cells. The invention and increased availability of 3D printing is leading to more customizable parts at lower costs across a spectrum of applications, from wearable smart devices to autonomous vehicles. The achievement also brings […]

Flash sintering is a ceramic processing technique […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have developed a data transfer link that’s slimmer, more energy efficient, and faster than alternatives like USB or fiber optics. The advance could cut energy budgets at data centers and lighten the load for electronics-rich aircraft. The research was presented at this month’s IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference. The lead […]

Harvard scientists reported superconductivity progress that’s more robust and operates at higher temperatures. The scientists successfully stacked three sheets of graphene and then twisted each of them at a specific angle to produce a three-layered structure more capable, robust and with a higher operating temperature than many of the double-stacked graphene designs. In 2018, the […]

Brookhaven National Laboratory, Stony Brook University (SBU), and other collaborating institutions’ scientists have uncovered dynamic, atomic-level details of how an important platinum-based catalyst works in the water gas shift reaction. The experiments provide definitive evidence that only certain platinum atoms play an important role in the chemical conversion, and could therefore guide the design of […]
