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]

Quantum Capacitance Plays a Role in Performance of Carbon Components as Electrodes

Lithium-ion batteries could benefit from a theoretical model created at Rice University and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory that predicts how carbon components will perform as electrodes. [More]
Challenges and Opportunities of Charge Transport in Polycrystalline Graphene

Challenges and Opportunities of Charge Transport in Polycrystalline Graphene

The graphene produced by chemical vapor deposition is typically polycrystalline. Authors from the ICN2 Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group, led by ICREA Research professor Stephan Roche, together with from the group of Prof. Young-Hee Lee Sungkyunkwan University, review in Advanced Materials the challenges and opportunities of these structures.
