Researchers may have found ways to prevent dendrite formation in solid-state batteries. Their findings are described in the journal Nature Energy, in a paper by MIT graduate student Richard Park, MIT Professor Yet-Ming Chiang and researchers at MIT and other institutions. Chiang explained, “The only way you can reach the energy densities that are interesting… Read more »

Researchers around the world have taken up the quest for a better battery, and lithium-air is one of the many promising routes to the Grail. This week, a team from MIT described an improved way to make nanowires for a lithium-air battery electrode using – of all things – viruses. “Biologically enhanced cathode design for… Read more »
The prototype system uses an adsorbant, a material with microscopic pores that attract water molecules, to drive an evaporative cooling process.
