Carnegie Mellon researchers find novel biological sources for battery materials

The marine cuttlefish may be the next best source of electrode materials

The squirmy marine cuttlefish may be the next best source of electrode materials for batteries to power edible medical devices. Carnegie Mellon University's Chris Bettinger and Jay Whitacre have found that ink from the cuttlefish, a close relative of the squid, provides the perfect chemistry and nanostructure to power t

RRAM prototype

In an engineering first, Stanford researchers have built a working prototype for a new type of memory chip that has the potential to store more data, using less space, than the flash memory chips found in smart phones, tablets and laptops today. This new chip uses a technology called resistive random access me
