Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, scientists have developed a technique to convert waste paper, from single-use packaging and bags, and cardboard boxes, into a crucial component of lithium-ion batteries. Through a process called carbonization which converts paper into pure carbon, the researchers turned the paper’s fibers into electrodes, which can be made into rechargeable batteries […]

Yanliang Zhang, associate professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, and collaborators Alexander Dowling and Tengfei Luo have developed the high-performance, energy-saving thermoelectric devices. The paper reporting […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Waves of magnetic excitation sweep through nickel oxide material whether it’s in superconducting mode or not. Its another clue to how unconventional superconductors carry electric current with no loss. SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory scientists embedded elementary particles called muons into a many-layered nickel oxide superconductor to learn more about its magnetic properties. They discovered […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory researchers discovered that nickel oxide superconductors contain a phase of quantum matter, known as charge density waves, that’s common in other unconventional superconductors. The new study shows that nickel oxide superconductors, which conduct electricity with no loss at higher temperatures than conventional superconductors do, contain a type of quantum matter […]

A Hong Kong University of Science and Technology research team has developed a new electrode design that is set to enable the rechargeability of alkaline zinc batteries, one of the most common types of non-rechargeable batteries used in our daily lives, shedding light on a wider application of rechargeable batteries. The team’s research work has […]
