Researchers Investigating the Use of Graphene to Reduce Size and Weight of Batteries

University of Manchester researchers are investigating ways to use graphene to reduce the size and weight of batteries as well as making them resilient and suitable for high capacity energy storage for renewable generation.

The team’s new project ‘Electrochemical Energy Storage with Graphene-Enabled Materials’ is focusing on how to use graphene as a component in batteries to not only reduce the size and weight but to also expand the lifespan of batteries. Experiments are being performed on how graphene interacts with chemical components and determine how quick electrons can be transferred across the graphene and the capacitance magnitude.

A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part One

Solving Maxwell’s Equations for real-life situations, like predicting the RF emissions from a cell tower, requires more mathematical horsepower than any individual mind can muster. These equations don’t give the scientist or engineer just insight, they are literally the answer to everything RF.
