KAUST discovers inorganic 3D foam that may improve anode performance

KAUST, a Saudi Arabian private research university, says that lithium batteries may soon enjoy enhanced efficiency, thanks to a highly ordered foam of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) that it has discovered.  KAUST reports that the complex hierarchical structure of the self-assembling foam allows it to easily and repeatedly soak up and then release large quantities of… Read more »

KAUST team assesses deployment of dynamic wireless charging in cities

By applying statistical geometry to analyze urban road networks, KAUST researchers have advanced their understanding of how dynamic wireless charging systems might influence driver behavior and city planning in a future dominated by EVs. The study, published in the IEEE Open Journal on Vehicular Technology, used tools from stochastic geometry to establish a framework that… Read more »

Laser treatment improves battery performance in Saudi study

Researchers at KAUST, a Saudi Arabian private research university, have used laser pulses to increase MXene’s energy capacity for enhancing next-generation battery anodes. The team, led by Husam N. Alshareef and Ph.D. student Zahra Bayhan, discovered that the chemical change that forms molybdenum oxide within the structure of an alternative electrode material known as MXene… Read more »
