Science Published a Paper on Next-gen Batteries with Hydride-ion Conduction

Posted by MSE Supplies on

Science just published a new research article about transporting the hydrogen anion Hydrogen cation (H+) transport is common in both biological systems and engineered ones such as fuel cells. In contrast, the transport of hydrogen anions (H−) is far less common and is usually coupled with or compromised by the parallel transport of electrons. Kobayashi et al. examined the transport of H− in a series of rare-earth lithium oxyhydrides (see the Perspective by Yamaguchi). They prevented electronic conduction by using Li+ as a countercation. In an electrochemical cell, the oxyhydride material acted as a solid-state electrolyte for H−, which suggests an...

DOE Li Battery Funding Opportunity: The Integration and Optimization of Novel Ion Conducting Solids (IONICS) program

Posted by MSE Supplies on

The Integration and Optimization of Novel Ion Conducting Solids (IONICS) program seeks to enable transformational electrochemical cells by creating components built with solid ion conductors that have a wide range of desirable properties including low ionic area-specific resistance (ASR), high chemical and electrochemical stability, high selectivity, good mechanical properties, etc. through innovative approaches to overcome tradeoffs among coupled properties. It also seeks to develop and apply methods for processing of solid ion conductors and their integration into electrochemical devices. Components built with solid ion conductors, especially separators, have the potential to serve as enabling platforms, as demonstrated by the wide...

Hot Topics in Battery Science and Technology from ACS Articles

Posted by MSE Supplies on

The current era is frequently and justifiably referred to as the silicon age or as the age of information. Recent years have seen the added twist that users in this era expect the information to be readily available at all times and at all places. The information age has morphed into the age of portable information. In enabling this age of portable information, one could argue that lithium-ion batteries have played a central, starring role. MSE Supplies is a leading supplier of high quality anode, cathode and electrolyte materials for Lithium Ion Batteries research and manufacturing. The community at large clearly recognizes the...

Global Smart Glass Market to grow to $5.8 Billion USD by 2020

Posted by MSE Supplies on

Smart glass or switchable glass (also smart windows or switchable windows in those applications) is glass or glazing whose light transmission properties are altered when voltage, light or heat is applied. Generally, the glass changes from translucent to transparent, changing from blocking some (or all) wavelengths of light to letting light pass through. MSE Supplies is a leading supplier of high quality materials and equipment for advanced materials research and manufacturing. Smart glass technologies include electrochromic, photochromic, thermochromic, suspended particle, micro-blind and liquid crystal devices. When installed in the envelope of buildings, smart glass creates climate adaptive building shells, with the ability...
