One nanotube could be great for electronics applications, but researchers report new evidence that two could be tops.
Engineers already knew that size matters when using single-walled carbon nanotubes for their electrical properties. But until now, nobody had studied how electrons act when confronted with the Russian doll-like structure of multiwalled tubes. Now, researchers have calculated the…read full article
Dr. Carlos Ziebert, head of IAM-AWP’s Calorimeter Center, KIT, explains how calorimeters can be applied to improve materials for thermal propagation mitigation in Lithium-ion batteries

New research could lead to batteries that can pack more power per pound and last longer, based on the long-sought goal of using pure lithium metal as one of the battery's two electrodes, the anode.

Scientists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have developed a device that uses a natural protein to create electricity from moisture in the air, a new technology they say could have…read full article
Electric vehicle owners may soon be able to pull into a fueling station, plug their car in, go to the restroom, get a cup of coffee and in 10 minutes, drive out with a fully charged battery, according…read full article
Electric motors are implicated in two major decarbonisation options involving electrification: electric vehicles (EVs) and heat pumps. This will lead to a significant market growth, as well as growing…read full article
To cool the rolling mill's machine shop, Outokumpu has chosen a solution that saves energy compared with more conventional alternatives. There are two ways to cool the machine shop. One is to use outdoor air, the other to use industrial water from a nearby river and cool the air through existing cooling coils and a SWEP B649 brazed plate heat exchanger.read full article
Marc Delannoy, General Manager Airflux: “Airflux selected SWEP as a partner for two main reasons. First, SWEP is a well-known brand, appreciated in the heat exchange industry. Furthermore, one of our main partners was already successfully integrating SWEP's brazed plate heat exchangers in their systems. We have had a positive experience of integrating SWEP heat exchangers into our customers'…read full article
