University of Illinois Grainger College of Engineering researchers have created a high-voltage microbattery (> 9 V), with high-energy and -power density, unparalleled by any existing battery design. Translating electrochemical performance of large format batteries to microscale power sources has been a long-standing technological challenge, limiting the ability of batteries to power microdevices, microrobots and implantable […]

Pusan National University researchers have invented a new sodium ion anode material. They are using a recently developed pyrolyzed quinacridones, new carbonaceous anode materials, that are efficient, easily prepared, and exhibit excellent electrochemical properties, including high sodium-ion storage performance and cycling stability. Their study paper was made available online on October of 2022 and will […]

The process uses the first effective use of lead acetate as a precursor in making formamidinium-caesium perovskite solar cells. The team at Exciton Science, based at Monash University, were able to create perovskite […]
