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 […]

University of Queensland scientists have discovered a ‘recipe’ which allows molecular switches to work at room temperature. The scientists have finally cracked a problem that’s frustrated chemists and physicists for years, potentially leading to a new age of powerful, efficient, and environmentally friendly technologies. Using quantum mechanics, Professor Ben Powell from UQ’s School of Mathematics […]

A research team led out of Tianjin University replaced the traditional graphite anode in a lithium-ion battery with a bumpy carbon-based material, which maintains its rechargeable storage capacity down to -31 F. When temperatures fall below freezing, cellphones need to be recharged frequently, and electric cars have shorter driving ranges. This is because their lithium-ion […]
