Northern Illinois University scientists have described development of a cost-effective Scotch-tape-like film that can be applied to perovskite solar cells and capture 99.9% of leaked lead in the event of solar cell damage. The researchers at Northern Illinois University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado, are […]

Researchers at Dalian Maritime University, Marine Engineering College reported they have developed flexible power generators that mimic the way seaweed sways to efficiently convert surface and underwater waves into electricity to power marine-based devices. Ocean waves can be powerful, containing enough energy to push around sand, pebbles and even boulders during storms. These waves, as […]

Curtin University research has found a simple and affordable method to determine which chemicals and types of metals are best used to store and supply energy. This may be a breakthrough for any battery-run devices and technologies reliant on the fast and reliable supply of electricity, including smart phones and tablets. Lead author Associate Professor […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Argonne National Laboratory researchers have discovered a material that is only four atoms thick and allows for the study of the motion of charged particles in only two dimensions. Those kinds of studies could lead to pivotal discoveries in solid electrolytes for batteries and other applications. It was an unplanned discovery that could lead […]

A team of University of California – San Diego materials scientists and chemists has determined the proper stack pressure that lithium metal batteries, or LMBs, need to be subjected to during battery operation in order to produce optimal performance. Keep in mind that Lithium Metal and Lithium Ion batteries are quite different. The team, which […]
