Light makes ions mobile
Light makes ions mobile
Lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells and many other devices depend on the high mobility of ions in order to work properly. But there a large number of obstacles to such mobility. A research team led by Jennifer L. M. Rupp of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harry L. Tuller of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have now shown for the first time that light can be used to increase the mobility of ions and improve the performance of such devices.

For a greener carbon footprint
For a greener carbon footprint
The Federal Statistics Office has made an exact tally: in 2019, 83.7 million lithium-ion batteries were sold in Germany. The carbon footprint they create is currently significant, especially in their production. Because batteries play a key role in the successful implementation of the energy transformation - and in the associated increase in electromobility - the aim is for them to become "greener? in future.

Contactless high performance power transmission
Contactless high performance power transmission
Superconducting coils for contactless power transmission in the kilowatt range Such devices could be placed on a charging station whenever they are not in use. This would make it possible to effectively utilize even short idle times to recharge their batteries. However, the currently available transmission systems for high performance recharging in the kilowatt range and above are large and heavy, since they are based on copper coils.
