From seaweed to energy storage

Carbohydrates from seaweed are being converted into complex carbon-based structures that can store electrical energy

‘Deep learning’ agents can accurately determine a 2D material's physical characteristics, such as strength, from minimal data on its structure.

A coating of graphene can stop oxygen escaping from the cathode of a lithium battery, helping to prevent the battery from catching fire.

Scientists have developed a model for predicting the shape of metal ‘islands’ sandwiched between or below 2D materials such as graphene.

Researchers have developed a 'hybrid' cathode for lithium-sulfur batteries that combines an intercalation type material with a conversion type material.

Scientists have developed a novel 3D printing process for fabricating flexible conducting fibers on textiles, which can be used to harvest energy.
