Thermoelectric materials have the ability to generate electricity when a temperature difference is applied to them. Conversely, they can also generate a temperature gradient when current is applied to them.
Magnetite is a type of iron oxide with the chemical formula Fe3O4. It has many interesting properties that make it the focus of research for use in spintronics devices.
Researchers from Portugal recently developed an effective thermistor-type temperature monitoring method for boron-doped diamond-coated carbide cutting tools.
A study recently published in the journal Cleaner Materials evaluates the impacts of recycling waste PET as a partial substitute for fine natural aggregates on the workability, mechanical, microstructural, economic, and thermal properties of concrete.
Diamond structured-colloidal crystals are attractive for a number of applications due to their unique properties.
The novel study in the Small-Science Journal focuses on the latest techniques in the development of electromagnetic wave absorbing and shielding (EMAS) materials to reduce electromagnetic wave power density.
Scientists from HSE Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics (HSE MIEM) and the Institute of Non-Classical Chemistry in Leipzig have suggested a new theoretical model of supercapacitors that considers the properties of a cation. This significantly affects the electric differential capacitance of supercapacitors.
A recent study presented in the Additive Manufacturing journal has explored the production and properties of 3D printed alloys with a specific focus on the roles of the solute and nucleant in grain refinement processes.
Researchers in Japan and Korea have recently developed a hybrid system made up of quantum dots (QDs) with fine parameters that could be a strong candidate for improving the performance of thermoelectric materials in the low-temperature region.
It has been predicted that the amount of lithium produced between 2015 and 2019 will need to double between 2025 and 2030 to meet electric vehicle demand.
