This week on WDD’s HotSpot, Casetop from Livi Design is a netbook-like combo that uses a smartphone for its computing power; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has created new microbatteries, sought to achieve a more favorable balance between energy and density; and SM Instrument Company and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have created a sound camera, the SeeSV-S205.
A new joint innovation by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the University of Cambridge could pave the way for redefining the ampere in terms of fundamental constants of physics. The world's first graphene single-electron pump (SEP), described in a paper in Nature Nanotechnology, provides the speed of electron flow needed to create a new standard for electrical current based on electron charge.
The electrodes, called anodes and cathodes, are the building blocks of powerful battery arrays like those used in electric and hybrid vehicles. They are copper on one side and coated with a black compound to store lithium on the other. Lithium ions travel from the anode to the cathode while the battery is being charged and in the reverse direction when discharging energy.
