Researchers found that batteries built from safe, inexpensive components can deliver much more juice than batteries built with lithium ion technology.
New Quantum State in Graphene
Previously unknown states of matter discovered in double-layer stacks of graphene showing complex interactions of electrons both within and across each graphene layer.
Deforestation’s Dire Effects
Thousand-year-old tropical soil could be unleashing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, according to a new study from researchers at Florida State University.
Triumph of the Trions?
Move aside, electrons; it's time to make way for the trion, a quantum bound state of three charged particles that could revolutionize information transmission.
A Year at the MagLab
Want to understand the scope and impact of the National MagLab in just a few minutes? Check out this short-and-sweet brochure.
Scientists use our magnets to explore semiconductors, superconductors, newly-grown crystals, buckyballs and materials from the natural world — research that reveals the secret workings of materials and empowers us to develop new technologies.
Scientists here are working to optimize petroleum refining, advance potential bio-fuels such as pine needles and algae, and fundamentally change the way we store and deliver energy by developing better batteries.
