Tadiran has developed bobbin-type lithium thionyl chloride (LiSOCl2) batteries that have been specially modified for use in the cold chain, which is required for transporting the COVID-19 vaccine.
Lithium metal solid-state batteries can provide a safer, more powerful alternative to the current standard.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a surge in fab spending and is expected to continue over the next several years, according to a report by SEMI.
Altering thin 2D materials atomically and physically for applications in many optical and electronic devices allows them to enhance light emission and increase signal strength.
Applications, repairs and risk reduction, failure modes, retrofits, documentation and project scope are among additional information provided for developing a critical power sequence of operation. Take related training with a quiz for one continuing education unit (CEU).
Researchers are studying how plant-based inks can be used to print low-cost, biodegradable and recyclable sensors.
Presenters from the Oct. 13, 2020 webcast “Improve industrial facility energy management: a process-based approach” addressed questions not covered during the live event.
Normally an insulator, diamond becomes a metallic conductor when subjected to large strain in a theoretical model, which could improve solar cells, quantum sensors, optical devices and more.
An atomic mechanism that makes some thermoelectric materials efficient near high-temperature phase transition could help unlock better options for technologies reliant on transforming heat into electricity.
Heat-harnessing solar cells that reflect 99% of the energy they can’t convert to electricity could help bring down the price of storing renewable energy as heat and improve overall energy efficiency.
