Researchers take important step towards new generation of batteries
Delft University of Technology researchers, in collaboration with researchers from Tsinghua University, have taken an important step towards a new type of Li-ion battery, which can be found in our smartphones, laptops and electric cars, among other things. For the first time, they succeeded in making an electrolyte that goes well with an anode made of lithium metal. Lithium metal is the holy grail for anodes. In theory, a two to three times higher energy density can be achieved with this material compared to current batteries.

Researchers organically engineer solar cells using enzymes in papaya fruit
Titanium dioxide (titania) thin films are commonly used in various types of solar cells. The fabrication methods that are currently used to create such titania films require high temperatures, as well as expensive, high-end technologies. Researchers at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) have now developed a fully organic method to engineer porous titania thin films at relatively low temperatures.

A new look for the Reactor Institute Delft
TU Delft's Reactor Institute Delft (RID) will get a new look in the form of new dome plating. As of 4 November, a scaffolding is being built around the dome for this purpose. Because of the shape of the dome, building the scaffolding is a specialist job. This will take a few weeks. It is expected that all 1,200 plates will be replaced in the second quarter of 2020.
