Nanyang Technological University’s study showed how encasing algae protein in liquid droplets can dramatically enhance the algae’s light-harvesting and energy-conversion properties by up to three times. The variety of humble algae that cover the surface of ponds and seas could hold the key to boosting the efficiency of artificial photosynthesis, allowing scientists to produce more […]

University of California – San Diego engineers have created a new type of battery that weaves two promising battery sub-fields into a single battery. The battery uses both a solid state electrolyte and an all-silicon anode, making it a silicon all-solid-state battery. The initial rounds of tests show that the new battery is safe, long […]

Researchers at the University of Central Florida have designed for the first time a nanoscale material that can efficiently split seawater into oxygen and hydrogen. Hydrogen fuel derived from the sea could be an abundant and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels, but the potential fuel source has been limited by technical challenges, including how to […]

A Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH) joint research team succeeded in improving ionic conductivity using electrostatic interface of polymer electrolytes. The POSTECH research team recently developed a polymer electrolyte without a “dead zone” – which lowers ion transport – thus accelerating the commercialization of all solid state batteries. As the demand for electric […]
