Manufacturing nickel manganese cobalt

Manufacturing nickel manganese cobalt

In the early 1990s, researchers at Argonne Building 205 began to complain publicly that the management here was too depressing. The U.S. Department of Energy hopes to customize various inventions, and at the same time arranges excessive safety training, these two factors combined “result in a decline in autonomy.” The laboratory is no longer as…

Fraud in the battery industry

Fraud in the battery industry

After the energy crisis broke out in the 1970s, the price of oil gradually dropped from a high level, and the urgency of battery research also disappeared. Exxon abandoned the power storage project and authorized Stan Wittingham’s lithium battery patent. Former US President Ronald Reagan cancelled energy projects that had been receiving government funding for…

“Two-way Marathon Runners”-Part Two

“Two-way Marathon Runners”-Part Two

Thackeray brought a batch of samples of magnetic iron oxide spines from Pretoria. He plans to allow lithium ions to intercalate and release these spinels at room temperature, thus proving that iron oxide spinel is a powerful new battery material, and its commercial potential is expected to exceed cobalt formulations. Gudinaf ignored Thackeray’s hypothesis because…

“Two-way marathon runners”

“Gay Marathon”. The track stretches from Pietermaritzburg, the capital of South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province, to the eastern seaport city of Durban. The race course is 28 miles inland, and the altitude difference is about 3,000 feet. In 1968, Mike Thackeray participated in this event for the first time. It took 10 hours and 3 minutes…

Professor Goodenough

Professor Goodenough

John Goodenough grew up near New Haven, Connecticut, and his father Evan taught religious history at Yale University. According to his recollection, the relationship between the parents “is like a disaster.” After the conflict between the two of them, they began to alienate their children. Goodenough and his mother Helen “never got along well.” At…

“Disappointed and tired eyes”Part two

In the early 20th century, electric cars powered by lead-acid batteries seemed to outperform cars powered by internal combustion engines. The internal combustion engine uses gasoline as fuel to convert heat energy into mechanical energy through processes such as air intake, compression, combustion, and expansion. Since then, a series of inventions have appeared, such as…

“Disappointed and tired eyes”

In the 1960s, there were some signs of turbulence in the United States, which seemed to have affected the Argonne National Laboratory. Some people’s nuclear research projects have been criticized and research budgets have been cut, so everyone speculates that Agong’s survival is threatened. Soon, the director of the laboratory found that scientists were showing…

Origin of Argonne Laboratory

Origin of Argonne Laboratory

What name should the metallurgical laboratory give this new home? Some people suggest to use the name “Fermilab”, but this naming method is generally to commemorate the deceased, and Fermi is still alive, which is obviously not appropriate. In the end, the new home was named after a local town called “Agung”. The government requisitioned…

Relocation of the research mecca

Relocation of the research mecca

Although venture capitalists and some giants in the Silicon Valley of the United States don’t take the scientific research projects led by the US government in their eyes, they still have a very eye-catching view of the 17 national laboratories under the US Department of Energy. Argonne National Laboratory is especially respected for its unique…

Minister Wan Gang visits Agung

Minister Wan Gang visits Agung

You may ask, why did the United States invite Minister Wan Gang to visit the Argonne Laboratory? This is because the United States has fallen far behind its competitors in this field, which is really incredible. The United States is a bit like Japan in the 1970s and China in the 1990s-at the bottom of…
