A newly developed glass-polymer hybrid electrolyte addresses challenges in solid-state lithium batteries.
February 1, 2016
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a novel electrolyte for use in solid-state lithium batteries that overcomes many of the problems that plague other solid electrolytes while also showing signs of being compatible with next-generation cathodes.
Increasing regulations in China could provide opportunities for other regions of the world, while continued improvement in the global economy is leading to growth for many traditional and advanced ceramic materials.
Maintaining signal directionality in cellular base stations is vital and requires the use of isolators and circulators, which consist of a non-conducting ceramic ferrite that is biased by a permanent magnet.
Researchers at The University of New South Wales (UNSW) have created an “instruction manual” for developing metallic glass, an ultra-tough yet flexible alloy described as the most significant materials science innovation since plastic.
Aluminum nitride (AlN) powder filler plays an important role in producing next-generation, high-performance resins (e.g., those with high thermal conductivity of around 10 W/m-K, as well as electric insulation).
