Newswise: Scientists Design Organic Cathode for High Performance Batteries
Released: 31-May-2019 9:00 AM EDT
Scientists Design Organic Cathode for High Performance Batteries
Brookhaven National Laboratory

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory have designed a new, organic cathode material for lithium batteries. With sulfur at its core, the material is more energy-dense, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly than traditional cathode materials in lithium batteries.

Combination of experiments and calculations allows examination of boron’s complicated dance
Argonne National Laboratory

In a study that combines groundbreaking experimental work and theoretical calculations, researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, in collaboration with scientists in Germany and Poland, have determined the nuclear geometry of two isotopes of boron. The result could help open a path to precise calculations of the structure of other nuclei that scientists could experimentally validate.
