Battery built from GM viruses

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have genetically engineered viruses to build both the positively and negatively charged ends of a lithium-ion battery. The new virus-produced batteries have the same energy capacity and power performance as the state-of-the-art rechargeable batteries being considered to power plug-in hybrid cars. MIT’s Angela Belcher, who led the research team, […]

“Spin battery” provides novel electrical storage

Researchers at the University of Miami and at the Universities of Tokyo and Tohoku, Japan, have developed what they call a “spin battery” which is “charged” by applying a large magnetic field to nano-magnets in a device called a magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ). In the future, the new battery could power cars and computers, say […]
