Researchers Report High Performance Solid-State Sodium-Ion Battery

ORGANIC CATHODE OFFERS MORE RELIABLE CONTACT WITH ELECTROLYTE, A KEY TO STABILITY

 

Solid-state sodium-ion batteries are far safer than conventional lithium-ion batteries, which pose a risk of fire and explosions, but their performance has been too weak to offset the safety advantages. Researchers Friday reported developing an organic cathode that dramatically improves both stability and energy density.

Could Robots Make a Documentary about a 5K Race?

Students are building a robotic car capable of traveling up to 10 mph as part of the project.

UH-Led Project Focuses on Training Robots to Observe and Make Decisions

 

A 5K race can offer both victory and heartbreak, but capturing those moments on video requires both planning ahead and making on-the-spot decisions about where the camera operators should be.

Imaging Technology Will Offer New Clues to Embryonic Development

Researchers from the University of Houston and Baylor College of Medicine are developing a new technology to allow simultaneous imaging of both embryonic structural development and the molecular underpinnings that occur in the developing circulatory system.

Better Understanding Could Lead to New Prevention and Treatment for Birth Defects

 

Soon after conception, an embryo’s circulatory system connects to that of its mother. Complications that occur at this critical time can result in miscarriage or birth defects with long-term chronic conditions. Unfortunately, limitations in imaging technologies prevent researchers from fully understanding the cellular-level events leading up to this crucial point.

Real-life Superheroes Inspire Boys to be STEM Leaders

Joshua Becerra shares his excitement about the UH St. Elmo Brady STEM Academy.

If Houstonian Juan Becerra, a father of three boys, could have any superpower, it’d be to look into the future. He’d use it to do everything right and lift his boys up as high as possible. He believes that all parents dream of giving their children a better life than their own.

Researchers Report New Light-Activated Micro Pump

Researchers have announced the discovery of a laser-driven photoacoustic microfluidic pump, capable of moving fluids in any direction without moving parts or electrical contacts.

Pump Works Without Moving Parts, Electrical Contacts

 

Even the smallest mechanical pumps have limitations, from the complex microfabrication techniques required to make them to the fact that there are limits on how small they can be. Researchers have announced a potential solution – a laser-driven photoacoustic microfluidic pump, capable of moving fluids in any direction without moving parts or electrical contacts.
