Shearing Spherical Auxetic Cells and Mechanisms

Auxetic materials and structures have a negative Poisson's ratio, which means they counterintuitively expand when stretched laterally. Previous work on auxetics focused on understanding this anomalous behavior. More recent work focuses on exploiting these unique characteristics to enhance existing...

Solid Electrolyte with I-4 Crystal Structure

Current electrolytes in lithium-ion batteries are flammable organic solvents and can be unstable. In addition to their inherent stability, solid-state electrolytes are nonflammable and may allow the use of metal anodes, increasing battery energy density considerably.

Solid Polymer Electrolyte Lithium Ion Battery

Existing rechargeable lithium-ion batteries use a liquid electrolyte, which is disadvantageous as it is extremely volatile at high temperatures, exhibits electrochemical breakdown at high voltages, and can react with other components in the battery causing a reduction in battery capacity. Block...
