Excitonium: A New Form Of Matter That Exhibits Macroscopic Quantum Phenomena


Physicists discover a new form of matter called Excitonium, which was theorized 50 years ago. It’s made of excitons, particles formed in a strange quantum mechanical pairing. Momentum-resolved Electron Energy-Loss Spectroscopy (M-EELS) is used to discover it.  Physicists at University of California, Berkeley and University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign scrutinized non-doped crystals of the transition metal ...

Magnesium-Ion Batteries Are More Efficient and Safer Than Lithium

Magnesium-Ion Battery

It is still quite early to promise a more energy dense solid-state batteries that do no explode. However,  researchers at the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research have developed a magnesium-ion solid state conductor that will go a long way towards creating non flammable magnesium batteries with more energy-storage capacity. The reason why lithium batteries ...
