Mikado inside a nano box: Bertrand's paradox revisited

26 апреля, 2019 - 11:32
When you shake a box filled with Mikado sticks, will you get a uniform spreading of the sticks inside the box? This question touches Bertrands paradox, a classic in mathematics. For designing nano mikado boxes for photonics purposes, scientists wanted to be able to determine the free space between the sticks.

Intercalation energy tuning improves performance of multivalent ion batteries

26 апреля, 2019 - 09:09
Aqueous rechargeable batteries based on earth abundant materials are promising alternatives to lithium-ion batteries, which are plagued by safety and environmental concerns. These batteries utilize water-based electrolytes, which are safe, low-cost, and environment-friendly, but also possess a much higher ionic conductivity than that of the organic electrolytes. In new work, researchers report an effective and general strategy to transform inactive intercalation hosts into efficient zinc ion storage materials through intercalation energy tuning.
