New Electrolyte Eliminates Dendrites that Short-Circuit Rechargeable Batteries

New Electrolyte Eliminates Dendrites that Short-Circuit Rechargeable Batteries

Dendrites are small, pin-like fibers that can short circuit rechargeable batteries and which in turn can promote fire hazards and restrict the capability of batteries to store up renewable energy or power smart phones. Now, a novel electrolyte developed for lithium batteries removes dendrites and at the same time makes batteries highly efficient by allowing them to carry a considerable amount of electric current. Batteries that use other dendrite-restricting solutions have failed to sustain current densities and high efficiencies. The study has been described in Nature Communications. [More]

New Study Reveals Magnetic Nature of Graphene and its Electronic Applications

A research team from the University of California, Riverside has developed a new technique of inducing magnetism in graphene without disrupting graphene’s electronic properties. Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms in a hexagonal lattice, and has many amazing properties. The magnetic properties of graphene have remained controversial due to the lack of strong experimental evidence. In general, upon doping graphene with magnetic impurities, magnetism can be induced in graphene. However, the doping may tend to affect the electronic properties of the material. [More]
