Multilayer design makes conducting stretchable batteries

Stretchable conductors that stay conducting even when stretched by as much as 300% in any direction could find use in a new generation of deformable and wearable electronic devices. The conductors are made by sequential layering of polymers and gold nanoparticles in a design that is the first of its kind according to the researchers…

Batteries act as first responders when UK-France interconnector trips

A graph illustrating the interconnector’s trip and the subsequent drop in capacity. Image: Limejump. Flexibility providers sprung into action late last week after Britain’s interconnector suffered a trip, causing around 1GW of capacity to fall off the system. Last Friday the interconnector between Britain and France suffered a trip, causing its output to half in…

The most complete study of battery failure sees the light

An international team of researchers just published in Advanced Energy Materials the widest study on what happens during battery failure, focusing on the different parts of a battery at the same time. The role of the ESRF, the European Synchrotron, in France, was crucial for its success. We have all experienced it: you have charged…
