Stanford scientists create a 'smart' lithium-ion battery that warns of fire hazard
Stanford University scientists have developed a "smart" lithium-ion battery that gives ample warning before it overheats and bursts into flames.
Giant spin-splitting on the surface of strontium titanate
The need for ever faster and more efficient electronic devices is growing rapidly, and thus the demand for new materials with new properties. Oxides, especially ones based on strontium titanate (SrTiO3), ...
Crumpled graphene could provide an unconventional energy storage
When someone crumples a sheet of paper, that usually means it's about to be thrown away. But researchers have now found that crumpling a piece of graphene "paper"—a material formed by bonding together layers ...
