Researchers develop breakthrough prototype of stretchable fabric-based lithium-ion battery

Most people already know and appreciate the capabilities of smartphones. Now imagine the possibilities offered by smart spacesuits, uniforms and exercise clothes. The future of wearable technology has just received a big boost, thanks to a team of University of Houston researchers who designed, developed and delivered a successful prototype of a fully stretchable fabric-based lithium-ion battery.

Three-dimensional structure control technology enables high-performance fuel cells with higher stability

A research team led by Dr. Yoo Sung Jong of the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research Center at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) has developed a fuel cell technology with high stability over a long period of time and improved power density compared to conventional fuel cells by introducing three-dimensional structure control technology. The study is published in the journal Advanced Materials.
