​  A spreadable interlayer could make solid state batteries more stable

​ A spreadable interlayer could make solid state batteries more stable

Press releases   •   May 19, 2020 07:02 BST

Solid state batteries are of great interest to the electric vehicle industry. Scientists at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, and Xi'an Jiaotong University, China now present a new way of bringing this promising concept closer to application. An interlayer, made of a spreadable, ‘butter-like’ material helps improve the current density tenfold, while also increasing performance and safety.

The construction sector accounts for a quarter of carbon dioxide emissions, in Sweden and globally. Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg studied the construction of an eight km stretch of road and calculated how emissions could be reduced now and by 2045, looking at everything from materials choice, production technology, supply chains and transport.

Mind-controlled arm prostheses that “feel” are now a part of everyday life

Mind-controlled arm prostheses that “feel” are now a part of everyday life

Press releases   •   Apr 29, 2020 22:00 BST

​For the first time, people with arm amputations can experience sensations of touch in a mind-controlled arm prosthesis that they use in everyday life. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine reports on three Swedish patients who have lived, for several years, with this new technology – one of the world’s most integrated interfaces between human and machine.
