A new University at Buffalo study shows how a magnetic material can be used to help monitor the amount of life left in a rechargeable battery before it needs to be recharged. Shenqiang Ren, a scientist and engineer at the University at Buffalo, led the project and explains how the system works. As lithium-ion batteries […]

Sandia National Lab engineers have developed a way to make a magnetic material that could lead to lighter and smaller, cheaper and better-performing high-frequency transformers. High-frequency transformers are needed for more flexible energy storage systems and widespread adoption of renewable energy. The new iron nitride transformers developed at Sandia should boost energy storage options. Sandia […]
