Paving the way for energy-efficient batteries

Paving the way for energy-efficient batteries
Inventors at Kansas State University and Catalyst Power Technologies are paving the way for the future with energy-efficient batteries for sensors, portable devices and electric cars. Jun Li, professor of chemistry; Steven Klankowski, May 2015 chemistry doctoral graduate, La Crescent, Minnesota; and Ronald A. Rojeski, Catalyst Power Technologies, Santa Clara, California, received a patent for their Li-ion battery anode, including a core-shell heterostructure of silicon-coated vertically aligned carbon nanofibers.

Paperlike battery electrode built with glass-ceramic

Paperlike battery electrode built with glass-ceramic
A paperlike battery electrode developed by a Kansas State University engineer may improve tools for space exploration or unmanned aerial vehicles. Gurpreet Singh, associate professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering, and his research team created the battery electrode using silicon oxycarbide-glass and graphene. The battery electrode has all the right characteristics. It is more than 10% lighter than other battery electrodes.

3D printed diagnostic device can rapidly detect anemia

3D printed diagnostic device can rapidly detect anemia
Identifying a blood disorder may be as easy as running a blood sample from a finger prick under a smartphone. That is the concept behind a new biomedical device being developed by Kansas State University researchers. Kim Plevniak, master's student in biological and agricultural engineering at the Kansas State University Olathe campus, and Mei He, assistant professor of biological and agricultural engineering, are working on a low cost, point-of-care device for home use.
