A series of click beetle-sized robots small enough to fit into tight spaces have been developed to explore large machines such as turbines and jet engines.
Spent lithium-ion batteries have metals that are hard to separate for recycling, but new tech by University of Illinois researchers uses electrochemistry to separate and recover the metals.
University of Illinois researchers have learned how control over the atomic alignment of solid materials can improve the cathode-solid electrolyte interface and stability in solid-state batteries, which can improve their performance and quality.
mobileSHIELD is designed to demonstrate a way to rapidly deploy I-COVID, the saliva-based test for COVID-19 developed at the University of Illinois.
University of Illinois researchers developed synthetic structure-based color materials for polymer inks used in 3D printing.
University of Illinois researchers developed an inexpensive and rapid smartphone-based pathogen testing device designed to ease pressure on testing laboratories during pandemics such as COVID-19.
University of Illinois researchers have expanded a microchip's capabilities by using 3D components on a standardized 2D microchip manufacturing platform.
Engineers at the University of Illinois have developed a solid polymer-based electrolyte for Lithium-ion batteries that can self-heal after damage.
