Newswise: MTU engineers examine lithium battery defects

MTU engineers examine lithium battery defects

Michigan Technological University

Lithium dendrites cause poor performance and even explosions in batteries with flammable liquid electrolytes. How these dendrites grow, even with a solid electrolytes, is still a mystery, but materials engineers at MTU and Oak Ridge study the conditions that enable dendrites and how to stop them.

Low Power Metal Detector Senses Magnetic Fingerprints

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Recent studies have shown metallic objects have their own magnetic fingerprints based on size, shape and physical composition. In AIP Advances, from AIP Publishing, scientists look to leverage these observations to potentially create a smaller and cheaper system that is just as effective as their larger counterparts.

Transformative 'Green' Accelerator Achieves World's First 8-pass Full Energy Recovery

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists from Cornell University and Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) have successfully demonstrated the world's first capture and reuse of energy in a multi-turn particle accelerator, where electrons are accelerated and decelerated in multiple stages and transported at different energies through a single beamline.

First detailed electronic study of new nickelate superconductor finds 3D metallic state

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

It represents an entirely new type of ground state for transition metal oxides, and opens new directions for experiments and theoretical studies of how superconductivity arises and how it can be optimized in this system and possibly in other compounds.
