Today lithium ion batteries are the leading energy storage of almost all things tech, from cell phones to tablets to electric vehicles and even airliners. It’s because they are a proven technology, light, long lasting and powerful. But lithium-ion technology isn’t perfect, yet. To store more power in lithium ion batteries scientists are experimenting with […]

The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC) used ultrafast, ultrabright X-ray pulses of the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) to enable unprecedented views of a catalyst in action, an important step in the effort to develop cleaner and more efficient energy sources. The SLAC used LCLS, together with computerized simulations, to reveal surprising […]
