”Ideal” Energy Storage Material for Electric Vehicles Developed

The goal of a polymer dielectric material with high energy density, high power density and excellent charge-discharge efficiency for electric and hybrid vehicle use has been achieved by a team of materials scientists. “Polymers are ideal for energy storage for transportation due to their light weight, scalability and high dielectric strength,” says Qing Wang, professor

Graphene Thinks Outside the Box

Inspired by origami, the ancient art of paper folding, Chinese researchers have created pre-programmed graphene-based paper that can self-fold into boxes, hand-like grippers, and even walking devices [Mu et al., Sci. Adv. (2015) 1, e1500533]. Folding and cutting two-dimensional materials is attracting new interest from materials scientists as an easy way of creating intricate three-dimensional
