Argonne National Laboratory scientists have created and tested a single-crystal electrode that promises to yield pivotal discoveries for advanced batteries under development worldwide. Such advanced batteries are under development worldwide for electric vehicles, consumer electronics and other applications. Collaborating on the project were researchers from Northwestern University and the University of Illinois at Chicago. The […]

A team of researchers from Vanderbilt University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has reported a discovery of an entirely new form of crystalline order that simultaneously exhibits both crystal and polycrystalline properties. The newly found crystalline order is being described as “interlaced crystals”. The interlaced crystal arrangement has properties that make it ideal for […]
