A new University at Buffalo study describes a new technology that provides both radiative cooling and solar heating, all in one system and without using electricity or fuel. It could help impoverished communities, reduce cooling and heating costs, lower CO2 emissions. It’s passive cooling like a shade tree provides. The researchers have been exploring how […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Nanoengineers at University of California – San Diego have discovered new fundamental insights for developing lithium metal batteries that perform well at ultra-low temperatures. This insight means that the weaker the electrolyte holds on to lithium ions, the better. By using such a weakly binding electrolyte, the researchers developed a lithium metal battery that […]

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 […]

An international research team has now developed concrete guidelines for how lithium metal batteries should be charged and operated, maximizing efficiency while minimizing the risk of short circuits. There are high hopes for the next generation of high energy-density lithium metal batteries, but before they can be used in our vehicles, there are crucial problems […]

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 […]
