A flower shaped semiconductor that could boost battery technology has been created by researchers at North Carolina State University. The nano-sized structures have ‘petals’ made from the semiconductor material germanium sulphide (GeS) stacked to
The ESPL team has returned from 13ELBC in Paris, the editor has been to many a battery conference so had a different take from his junior who was fresh to the conference world and easily impressed by free pens.
A hydrogen-powered hybrid train has been designed and built by students at the University of Birmingham, UK. The prototype narrow gauge locomotive, running on a 5 000-litre hydrogen fuel cell combined with lead-acid batteries, is the first of its
Advances made in lithium-air battery technology by researchers at the University of St Andrews, Fife, Scotland, could provide ten times more energy density per mass unit than conventional lithium-ion batte
China has published a white paper confirming its position on rare earth elements following a complaint filed to the World Trade Organisation. The US, EU and Japan protested China are limiting their export
The ‘second life’ potential of batteries is a hot topic at the moment with the rise in EVs meaning more lithium-ion batteries will be in circulation, including the Nissan Leaf being mass-produced in the UK from 2013.
