Lithium ion movement inside nanoparticles could be key to faster-charging, longer-lasting batteries

By Faye Oney / January 16, 2018

By observing lithium ion movement in nanoparticles, researchers have discovered that instead of increasing, they reverse at a certain point. Their discovery could be a breakthrough in faster-charging and longer-lasting batteries.

New way to determine thermal shock behavior of ceramics

By Martin Grolms / July 29, 2013

Comparison of  experimental results with simulated results to determine the thermal shock behavior of ceramic materials shows excellent agreement. Credit: Wiley Materials Views. (Editor’s note: This article was originally published in Wiley Materials Views on July 17.) Until the 1950s, the most important ceramic materials were pottery, bricks and tiles, cements and glass. Because of the remarkable…
