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 […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers have designed a battery made from inexpensive, abundant materials, that could provide low-cost backup storage for renewable energy sources. Less expensive than lithium-ion battery technology, the new architecture uses aluminum and sulfur as its two electrode materials with a molten salt electrolyte in between. The new battery architecture is described […]

Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) scientists use a water treatment for morphology control in the fabrication of active layer thin films, improving the performance and stability of large-area organic solar cells. Morphology control is essentially about making and placing very small particles in their working position. Albeit somewhat a simplified description, as miniaturization […]

The University of Illinois Chicago researchers new system uses electrolysis to transform captured carbon dioxide gas into high purity ethylene, with other carbon-based fuels and oxygen as byproducts. Their reporting paper has been published in Cell Reports Physical Science. The discovery offers a way to convert 100% of carbon dioxide captured from industrial exhaust into […]

Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research, or KSTAR, scientists have succeeded in sustaining a plasma gas at 100 million kelvin for up to 20 seconds without experiencing significant instabilities. This result is thought to be a significant step forward in the development of a sustainable nuclear fusion reaction. The KSTAR team’s research paper has been published […]
