Important steps towards calcium-based batteries

Calcium-based batteries promise to reach a high energy density at low manufacturing costs. This lab-scale technology has the potential for replacing lithium-ion technology in future energy storage systems. Using the electrolytes available, however, it has been impossible so far to charge calcium batteries at room temperature. In the Energy & Environmental Science journal, researchers of

A new generation of dynamic materials gets the green light

Developing synthetic materials that are as dynamic as those found in nature, with reversibly changing properties and which could be used in manufacturing, recycling and other applications, is a strong focus for scientists. In a world-first, researchers from QUT, Belgium’s Ghent University (UGent) and Germany’s Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have pioneered a novel, dynamic,

How to free up around a fifth of agricultural land globally

Making minor changes to how food is produced, supplied and consumed around the world could free up around a fifth of agricultural land, research suggests. Scientists have applied the British cycling team’s strategy of marginal gains – the idea that making multiple small changes can lead to significant effects overall – to the global food system.

A new method for exploring groundwater is simple, inexpensive and accurate

Engineering Geologists at KIT Develop a New Process with Australian Researchers to Quantify the State/Level of Groundwater and Subsurface Water is a vital resource for people and the environment. One of the most important sources is groundwater which is renewed from precipitation or surface water. Population growth as well as agriculture and industry strongly influence

An inexpensive electronic nose that can be taught different scents

Within the “smelldect“ Project, KIT Researchers Develop a Sensor to “Smell“ Cable Fires or Spoilt Food Freshly ground coffee, popcorn, bio waste or smoke – in the course of life, we get to know different scents and thanks to our nose, we distinguish and identify them even without seeing their source. Within the smelldect project,

Encrypted information could use chemical compounds for passwords

In the digital age, security of sensitive information is of utmost importance. Many data are encrypted before they enter the data highway. Mostly, these methods use a password for decryption, and in most cases, exactly this password is the entrance gate for hackers. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) use a new and highly
