New Method to Achieve Efficient Thermal Cooling and Heating Using MOFs

New Method to Achieve Efficient Thermal Cooling and Heating Using MOFs

Thermal systems use heat to produce cold, and vice versa. To do so, a material is needed that can dissipate water vapor particularly well and quickly. A new method simply applies this property as a layer onto the components. [More]
Researchers Track Nanoscale Structural Changes Degrading Battery Performance

Researchers Track Nanoscale Structural Changes Degrading Battery Performance

Batteries do not age gracefully. The lithium ions that power portable electronics cause lingering structural damage with each cycle of charge and discharge, making devices from smartphones to tablets tick toward zero faster and faster over time. To stop or slow this steady degradation, scientists must track and tweak the imperfect chemistry of lithium-ion batteries with nanoscale precision. [More]
