Nano-Material Based Supercapacitors May Increase Interest for Electric Cars in Germany

Nano-Material Based Supercapacitors May Increase Interest for Electric Cars in Germany

Electric cars are very much welcomed in Norway and they are a common sight on the roads of the Scandinavian country – so much so that electric cars topped the list of new vehicle registrations for the second time. This poses a stark contrast to the situation in Germany, where electric vehicles claim only a small portion of the market. [More]

Aberration-Corrected Transmission Electron Microscope Cuts Sheets of Graphene into Ribbons

Aberration-Corrected Transmission Electron Microscope Cuts Sheets of Graphene into Ribbons

Graphene, a material that consists of a lattice of carbon atoms, one atom thick, is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is the same. With so few atoms comprising the entirety of the material, the arrangement of each one has an impact on its overall function. [More]
