Scientists at the University of Missouri (MU) have created a nuclear battery that can be used to supply energy to everything from electric cars to space flight.
Researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) are a step closer to enhancing the generation of clean energy from bacteria.
Is it a solar cell or a rechargeable battery? Both! The patent-pending device invented at The Ohio State University is the world’s first solar battery.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have invented a single miniature structure that includes all the components of a battery which they say could be the beginning of the ultimate micro energy storage component. The device, known as a nanopore, is a tiny hole in a ceramic sheet that holds electrolyte to carry … Continue reading The World’s Smallest Battery
Switzerland’s Sebastien Buemi has made history in Formula E racing recently, when he became the first driver to win three Formula E rounds in row ever.
The Nissan IDS (Intelligent Driving System) concept car is drawing a lot of attention, which is understandable when you when you see it.
British mathematical physicist and engineer William Thomson, who is better known as Lord Kelvin, was born in Belfast in 1824. Thomson is best known today for inventing the international system of absolute temperature, stated in units of kelvin, which bear his name. His other notable works include contributions to electricity, magnetism, thermodynamics, hydrodynamics, geophysics and … Continue reading Lord Kelvin (1824-1907)
Pinball machines are some of the oldest arcade games in history. Dating back to the mid 1600s these games have evolved into the light flashing, ball bumping game we know today. The origins of pinball are intertwined with the history of many other games. Games played outdoors by rolling balls or stones on … Continue reading How to Make Your Own Pinball Game
People are hailing the lithium ion battery as being the gold standard in the industry because they can be recharged hundreds of times and are excellent for providing the power needed to run man different devices, including electric cars. The only problem is that lithium isn’t cheap and it could get even more expensive if … Continue reading A Desalination Battery Could Replace a Lithium Ion Battery in the Future
Scientists who have tried to gain a better understanding of the intricacies of high-temperature superconductivity, which is the ability of certain materials to carry electrical current without energy loss, have been confused by the mysterious phase that happens when charge carriers are added which appear to compete with superconductivity. It has also been a … Continue reading Scientists find a solution to long-standing mysteries of cuprate high-temperature superconductivity
