    Toward all-solid lithium batteries

    For the first time, a team at MIT has probed the mechanical properties of a sulfide-based solid electrolyte material to determine its mechanical performance when incorporated into batteries. Read More
  • Scientists detect a quantum crystal of electrons and “watch” it melt

    Scientists detect a quantum crystal of electrons and “watch” it melt

    MIT researchers believe they have finally captured the process of quantum melting — a phase transition in quantum mechanics, in which electrons that have formed a crystalline structure purely through their quantum interactions melt into a more disordered fluid, in response to quantum fluctuations to their density.

    Water vapor sets some oxides aflutter

    MIT researchers, led by Yang Shao-Horn, the W.M. Keck Professor of Energy, find that a perovskite oxide structure exposed to both water vapor and streams of electrons gives off oxygen and begins oscillating, almost resembling a living, breathing organism. Read More
