Synthesis and Processing of Cubic LiLaZrO for Use in Lithium Ion Batteries and Fuel Cells

IntroductionLithium ion batteries are used in a wide variety of consumer goods such as cell phones, mp3 players, and digital cameras. These products are becoming increasingly smaller, requiring a smaller battery. Although lithium-based batteries provide superior energy densities over other battery types, lithium is high reactive with water. To safeguard...

Ambiently Dried Aerogel for Thermal Insulation in High-Temperature Applications

IntroductionInnovators at Michigan State University (MSU) have developed a novel porous silica-based aerogel material and the process for its fabrication. In contrast to the supercritically dried aerogel, a related material, the MSU approach uses gel and liquid extraction. Evaporation of the precursor solvent is performed at room temperature and pressure,...
