Seaweed For Making Superconductors and Supercapacitors

Seaweed, a kind of algae, and a part of cuisines in many parts of the world could be worked to supply power to electronics and other devices. Researchers have developed a material from seaweed to produce better superconductors, batteries, and fuel cells. The research has been presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) on April 5, 2017. Dongjiang Yang, PhD, a team member explains that carbon rich materials offer the most efficient energy storage solutions. Since the team Read more [...]

Superconductivity Temperatures Get Higher

Superconductors have the capability and the potential to revolutionize our lives through improved technology. That includes superior thermal conductivity, remarkable magnetic properties and nearly zero electrical resistance. However, all that is only possible at cryogenic temperatures, that is, at temperatures in the region of absolute zero, at -273°C or -459°F. Researchers at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the Max Plank Institute for Chemistry are working on material, which will Read more [...]
