Super-high pressures used to create super “battery”

Using pressures similar to those found deep in the Earth, researchers from Washington State University have created a compact, never-before-seen material that lead researcher Choong-Shik Yoo (pictured center) says is the most condensed form of energy storage outside of nuclear energy. The researchers created the material in a diamond anvil cell, a small, two-inch by […]

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 […]

Prussian Blue Wrangled Into Data Storage Duty




Prussian Blue, a pigment used in paints, could form the basis of new high efficiency data storage devices. French scientists have created a compound from Prussian blue that can act as a magnetic medium where each bit of binary data is stored on a molecule. Prussian Blue is not magnetic at the outset, but it […]
