Aluminium battery 'charges quickly and is inexpensive'
07.04.2015 - 20:32
Stanford University scientists say they have invented the first high performance aluminium battery that charges quickly, is long lived and inexpensive, as well as offering a safe alternative to many batteries in use today."We have developed a rechargeable aluminium battery that may replace existing storage devices, such as alkaline batteri...
Three terminal memristor could bring 'brain like computing'
07.04.2015 - 20:30
A team of researchers from Northwestern University in the US says it has made a step forward in electronics that could bring 'brain like computing' closer to reality. The work involves developing more complex memristors.To date, memristors have been two terminal electronic devices, which can only control one voltage channel. However, Ma...

Microsupercapacitor is 'five times thinner' than sheet of paper
03.04.2015 - 21:22
Researchers at UCLA's California NanoSystems Institute say they have combined two nanomaterials to create an energy storage medium that combines the best qualities of batteries and supercapacitors.The hybrid supercapacitor is said to store large amounts of energy, to recharge quickly and to have a lifetime of more than 10,000 recharge cycle...
Excitons could enable optoelectronic processors, says research team
03.04.2015 - 21:17
Researchers of Aalto University in Finland and the University of Marburg in Germany say they have detected a new kind of transport phenomenon for charges. In its work, the team said a pair formed by a negative electron and a positive charge – also known as an exciton – moves onto an interface, after which its 'message' is passed...
