Team develops sodium ion batteries using copper sulfide

A KAIST research team recently developed sodium ion batteries using copper sulfide anode. This finding will contribute to advancing the commercialization of sodium ion batteries (SIBs) and reducing the production cost of ...

Very thin film could help manage heat flow in future devices

Purdue University researchers have demonstrated the ability of a thin film to conduct heat on just its surfaces, identifying a potential solution to overheating in electronic devices such as phones and computers.

Measuring electrical conductance across a single molecule

When noble metals, like gold, are treated with an aliphatic thiol, like alkanethiol, a uniform monolayer—a layer only one molecule deep—self-assembles on the surface. Each individual molecule can conduct electrons. This ...

Capturing brain signals with soft electronics

Klas Tybrandt, principal investigator at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics at Linköping University, has developed new technology for long-term stable neural recording. It is based on a novel elastic material composite, ...

Converting heat into electricity with pencil and paper

Thermoelectric materials can use thermal differences to generate electricity. Now there is an inexpensive and environmentally friendly way of producing them with the simplest tools: a pencil, photocopy paper, and conductive ...

Invisible, stretchable circuits to shape next-gen tech

Electrically conductive films that are optically transparent have a central role in a wide range of electronics applications, from touch screens and video displays to photovoltaics. These conductors function as invisible ...

Study shines new light on how Salmonella 'die' at low temperatures

The most economical way to kill bacteria that cause common food-borne illnesses—mostly caused by Salmonella enterica—is heat, but, the mechanisms that kill Salmonella at lower temperatures were not fully understood until ...
