Welcome to Lab 2.0 Where Computers Replace Experimental Science

We spend our lives surrounded by high-tech materials and chemicals that make our batteries, solar cells and mobile phones work. But developing new technologies requires time-consuming, expensive and even dangerous experiments. Luckily we now have a secret weapon that allows us to save time, money and risk by avoiding some of these experiments: computers. Thanks to Moore’s law and a number of developments in physics, chemistry, computer science and mathematics over the past 50 years… read more

Why Your Smartphone’s Battery Sucks Is Finally Revealed

When it comes to modern consumer electronics, we all seem to be obsessed with finding an electrical outlet to charge up. That’s because the lithium-ion batteries that power our smartphones, laptops, and other gadgets have a performance problem: with each charge, they become less efficient, eventually becoming too unstable to function. Now chemists from Texas A&M have uncovered what causes batteries to slowly die: instead of flowing freely, electrons coupled to lithium ions are getting… read more

3D Printed Electronic Devices Are Coming

The handheld computers we carry in our pockets represent almost unimaginable complexity. Batteries, sensors, chips, circuits, and touch displays in a space age shell, all painstakingly assembled by thousands of workers and… read more
