Researchers peer into atom-sized tunnels in hunt for better battery

Battery researchers seeking improved electrode materials have focused on 'tunneled' structures that make it easier for charge-carrying ions to move in and out of the electrode. Now a team has used a special electron microscope with atomic-level resolution to show that certain large ions can hold the tunnels open so that the charge-carrying ions can enter and exit the electrode easily and quickly.

A thermoelectric material in paintable liquid form

Researchers have demonstrated a new type of high-performance thermoelectric materials that possess liquid-like properties. These newly developed materials are both shape-engineerable and geometrically compatible in that they can be directly brush-painted on almost any surface.

Magnetic purification of blood 'pulls out' the bacteria

Magnets instead of antibiotics could provide a possible new treatment method for blood infection. This involves the blood of patients being mixed with magnetic iron particles, which bind the bacteria to them after which they are removed from the blood using magnets.
