Energy news, January 2020

Although intentional defects in a battery cathode can improve its performance, too many defects can leave the cathode at risk of fracture.

Researchers have confirmed experimentally that, as predicted, isotopically enriched cubic boron nitride does have a high thermal conductivity.

A nanoparticle comprising tiny spheres of copper dotted with single atoms of ruthenium makes an effective light-powered catalyst for producing syngas.

By combining electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy, researchers have been able to watch the growth of lithium dendrites.

The properties of perovskites can be controlled with strain engineering by growing thin films on substrates with different compositions.

By using aqueous electrolytes with a novel electrode, researchers have been able to produce a safe, cost-efficient battery that still performs well.

For the first time, scientists have managed to grow aluminum-based semiconductors for solar cells using hydride vapor phase epitaxy.

Researchers have found that doping can turn the halide perovskite caesium tin iodide into an inexpensive, non-toxic thermoelectric material.

nanocrystal core-shell catalyst for fuel cells uses less Pt but drives the oxygen reduction reaction more efficiently and is more durable

Neutron scattering experiments have helped to optimize a novel zeolite catalyst that can convert biomass into fuel sources with a high efficiency.

Researchers have found that opaque silicon solar cells can be made transparent by simply punching lots of tiny holes into them.
