Here we take a look at how batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells work, and how and where they are typically used.
Striving towards a more sustainable energy system, surface properties, surface interactions and reactions taking place at surfaces, have important roles to play.
Nanomaterials have found their way into ordinary products such as foods, cosmetics, and sportswear. Why did ‘nano’ become so popular? And what risks are involved when getting exposed to these nanoengineered entities?
Many phenomena that we perceive at the macroscale originate in surface interactions at the nanoscale. Research and product development are continuously going on to explore such processes which impact us, and the world we live in.
The official World Cup ball 2018 is called Telstar 18, inspired by the original Telstar that was made for 1970 games. It resembles the one used in 1970 by the appearance but that's where the similarities end. Have you ever thought how much science is put behind to develop the perfect soccer ball?
The paradigm shift from the study of static surface systems to the exploration of dynamic ones resulted in the field of gas-surface dynamics. The area includes concepts such as scattering, potential energy surfaces(PESs), energy exchange, surface corrugation, and charge transfer.
Surface science affects and contributes to areas: IT, materials and interface science, biomaterials, biotechnology, medicine, nanotechnology and cleantech.
Electric storage to secure the supply of electricity is becoming more important as our energy sources continue to shift from fossil fuels to renewable energies.
