Researchers from Iowa State University are expanding fundamental materials studies into research and development of new, all-solid-state technology for batteries.
Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
There is a general consensus among experts that it will take vast advances in materials technology to meet future efficiency and emissions requirements that can truly only be speculated about today.
