Samsung Researchers Nearly Double Lithium-ion Battery Capacity

a) A low-magnification tunneling electron microscope (TEM) image of Gr–Si nanoparticle (NP). (b) A higher-magnification image for the same Gr–Si NP from the white box in a. (Insets) The line profiles from the two red boxes indicate that the interlayer spacing between graphene layers is ~3.4 Å, in good agreement with that of typical graphene layers …

White LED Battery Powered Power Failure Light Using Atmega

Overview Where I live most of the time, the AC power drops out upon occasion. This used to leave me groping around in the dark for a flashlight. I could have bought a battery-backed up “emergency light” for about US$35, but being basically metal boxes with floodlights attached, they would make my living room look …
