Argonne scientists have developed a new electrolyte for lithium metal batteries to power electric vehicles. They would greatly increase vehicle range, cost less than current designs and run more safely, since the electrolyte is nonflammable.
Over 1,000 scientists, engineers and staff from U.S. Department of Energy national labs, academia, and technology companies discussed the rapidly emerging opportunities and challenges of artificial intelligence for science, energy and security.
In the most powerful X-ray facilities in the world, scientists can analyze samples so small they contain only 10,000 atoms. Smaller sizes have proved exceedingly difficult to achieve, but a multi-institutional team has scaled down to a single atom.
