(Phys.org) —A new material that can store large amounts of energy with very little energy loss has been developed by researchers at the Australian National University.
A magnetic phenomenon newly discovered by MIT researchers could lead to much faster, denser and more energy-efficient chips for memory and computation.
(Phys.org) —Solar cells that produce electricity 24/7, not just when the sun is shining. Mobile phones with built-in power cells that recharge in seconds and work for weeks between charges.
One of the most promising types of solar cells has a few drawbacks. A scientist at Michigan Technological University may have overcome one of them.
An unusual substance known as "dry water," which resembles powdered sugar, could provide a new way to absorb and store carbon dioxide, the major greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming, scientists reported today ...
The batteries in Illinois professor Paul Braun's lab look like any others, but they pack a surprise inside.
Small, smaller, "nano" data storage! Interest is growing in the use of metallofullerenes - carbon “cages” with embedded metallic compounds - as materials for miniature data storage devices. Researchers at Empa have discovered ...
(Phys.org) —A research team from the University of Alberta has used carbon nanomaterials to develop next-generation batteries capable of charging faster and lasting longer than today's standard lithium-ion batteries.
