Argonne materials scientist Swati V. Pol loads an in-situ lithium-ion battery into the low-energy resolution inelastic X-ray (LERIX) system at the Advanced Photon Source. This multi-element X-ray scattering instrument is helping Argonne researchers to understand the fundamental mechanisms that limit the performance of batteries.

Baterias de carros elétricos podem se tornar geradores de energia para uso doméstico - General Motors apresentou a ideia. Aparelho com cinco baterias pode ser utilizado em situações de emergência por até duas horas Pelo que parece, a energia elétrica vai ser uma das substitutas dos combustíveis fósseis utilizados pelos carros. Mas o que fazer com a bateria que movimenta esse novo tipo de veículo quando ela não servir mais seu propósito? O que seria um problema a ser resolvido, lidar co

Jennifer Salazar is a Coordinating Writer and Editor in Argonne’s Computing, Environment and Life Sciences directorate. "I've found that our researchers want to share what excites them and communicate it to others in the wider research community or to the public, and this offers a great environment for a writer," she said.
