Researchers from […]

Overcome the bottleneck of solid electrolytes for lithium batteries

[ad_1] Credit: CC0 Public Domain Prof. Ma Cheng from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and his collaborators proposed an effective strategy to address the electrode-electrolyte contact issue that is limiting the development of next-generation solid-state Li batteries. The solid-solid composite electrode created this way exhibited exceptional capacities and rate performances. Replacing […]

Moto G8 or G8 Plus tipped to offer solid power boost, triple cameras

[ad_1] The Motorola Moto G7 and G7 Plus are two of the better budget phones in the U.S. right now, offering a dual-camera setup and solid if unspectacular chipsets. Now, XDA-Developers may have obtained key specs for a Moto G8 series device via a source. The outlet isn’t sure if the specs are related to […]

Highly efficient solar cells thanks to solid foundation

[ad_1] Transparent, electrically conductive, and selective to one type of charge carriers: these are the properties of hole transport layers for Perovskite solar cells. Credit: Tobias Abzieher, KIT The sun is an inexhaustible and sustainable source of energy. Hence, photovoltaics is gaining importance in German energy production. Among promising materials for solar cells—with a high […]
