Transmission Electron Microscope Helps Spot Twin Boundary Defects to Improve Lithium-Ion Batteries

Transmission Electron Microscope Helps Spot Twin Boundary Defects to Improve Lithium-Ion Batteries

Most people see defects as flaws. A few Michigan Technological University researchers, however, see them as opportunities. Twin boundaries — which are small, symmetrical defects in materials — may present an opportunity to improve lithium-ion batteries. The twin boundary defects act as energy highways and could help get better performance out of the batteries. [More]

Lehigh Tribologist Studies Fundamental Origins of Friction on Complex Nanocomposite Surfaces

That's a low estimate of how much friction and wear costs the U.S. every year. In fact, studies suggest that so-called "normal wear and tear" costs industrialized countries some 2 to 6 percent of their annual gross domestic product. [More]

Bendable, Light-Emitting Nanocellulose Paper Infused with Biocompatible Quantum Dots

Bendable, Light-Emitting Nanocellulose Paper Infused with Biocompatible Quantum Dots

The rapid evolution of gadgets has brought us an impressive array of "smart" products from phones to tablets, and now watches and glasses. But they still haven't broken free from their rigid form. Now scientists are reporting in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces a new step toward bendable electronics. They have developed the first light-emitting, transparent and flexible paper out of environmentally friendly materials via a simple, suction-filtration method. [More]
Researchers Create Unexpected Shapes of Mesoscale Atoms

Researchers Create Unexpected Shapes of Mesoscale Atoms

Unexpected shapes of mesoscale atoms -- structures built of microdroplets encapsulated within microdroplets -- have been created at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland. The discovery was possible with a new method for precise control over placement of tiny segments of liquid, one in another. With further progress in innovative microfluidic systems, the method may find use in medicine and materials science. [More]
