Improved supercapacitors for super batteries, electric vehicles
Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have developed a novel nanometer scale ruthenium oxide anchored nanocarbon graphene foam architecture that improves the performance of supercapacitors, a development ...
Strongly interacting electrons in wacky oxide synchronize to work like the brain
Current computing is based on binary logic—zeroes and ones—also called Boolean computing, but a new type of computing architecture stores information in the frequencies and phases of periodic signals and could work more ...
