Flash spark plasma sintering: Harnessing thermal runaway to densify silicon carbide in seconds

By April Gocha / October 11, 2016

Researchers at San Diego State University now report that they have developed an ultra-rapid method of flash spark plasma sintering, called flash hot pressing, that can really quickly densify even hard-to-deform materials such as silicon carbide.

Making gains: Controlled thermal conductivity of lithium cobalt oxide means big things for batteries

By Eileen De Guire / June 11, 2014

Researchers have experimentally shown that lithium cobalt oxide (LiCoO2)—the MVP of electrochemical energy storage—can be controlled over a “considerable” range.
