Researchers discover new material to help power electronics

Ohio State University

A research team at The Ohio State University has discovered a way to simplify how electronic devices use those electrons—using a material that can serve dual roles in electronics, where historically multiple materials have been necessary. The team published its findings today March 18 in the journal Nature Materials.

Supercrystal: A Hidden Phase of Matter Created by a Burst of Light

Penn State Materials Research Institute

“Frustration” plus a pulse of laser light resulted in a stable “supercrystal” created by a team of researchers led by Penn State and Argonne National Laboratory, together with University of California, Berkeley, and two other national labs.

Materials could delay frost up to 300 times longer than existing anti-icing coatings

University of Illinois at Chicago

Most techniques to prevent frost and ice formation on surfaces rely heavily on heating or liquid chemicals that need to be repeatedly reapplied because they easily wash away. Even advanced anti-icing materials have problems functioning under conditions of high humidity and subzero conditions, when frost and ice formation go into overdrive.

Solar-Powered Moisture Harvester Collects and Cleans Water From Air

University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin)

Engineers at UT Austin combined hydrogels - materials designed to be “super sponges” - that are both highly water absorbent and can release water upon heating. The tech could be used in disaster situations, water crises or poverty-stricken areas and developing countries.

Cause of Cathode Degradation Identified for Nickel-rich Materials

Brookhaven National Laboratory

A team of scientists including researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have identified the causes of degradation in a cathode material for lithium-ion batteries, as well as possible remedies. Their findings, published on Mar. 7 in Advanced Functional Materials, could lead to the development of more affordable and better performing batteries for electric vehicles.

Scientists Track Patterns of Island Growth in Crystals

Argonne National Laboratory

In a new study from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, scientists have found that the seemingly random arrangement of islands that form to begin new layers during crystal growth can actually be very similar from layer to layer. The discovery may help scientists better understand of some of the mechanisms behind defect formation, as well as develop techniques to synthesize new types of crystals.

Engineering Living ‘Scaffolds’ for Building Materials

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Researchers at DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a platform that uses living cells as "scaffolds” for self-assembled composite materials. The technology could enable self-healing materials and other advanced applications in bioelectronics, biosensing, and smart materials.
