Lithium-air battery advance could be jaw-dropping improvement over li-ion

arstechnica.com
Lithium-air batteries have the potential to be the next big leap in battery tech because they get rid of a lot of the weight and complexity involved with standard batteries. That's because, instead of having all the battery components stored inside the battery itself, lithium-air batteries use oxygen in the...

Solid-State Materials Can Produce Superfluorescence

news.softpedia.com
A group of experts at the Rice University was recently able to demonstrate that superfluorescence – a phenomenon resulting in the collective emission of fluorescent light by an ensemble of excited atoms or ions – can occur in solid-state materials. The first to see clues that superfluorescence could exist in...

Quantum teleportation achieved over ten miles of free space

arstechnica.com
Quantum teleportation has achieved a new milestone or, should we say, a new ten-milestone: scientists have recently had success teleporting information between photons over a free space distance of nearly ten miles, an unprecedented length. The researchers who have accomplished this feat note that this brings us closer to...

Scientists Claim to Have Teleported Matter over 10 Miles

www.neatorama.com
Chinese scientists claim that they have teleported material over a distance of ten miles with 89% fidelity: Teleportation over distances of a few hundred meters has previously only been accomplished with the photons traveling in fiber channels to help preserve their state. In this particular experiment, researchers maximally entangled two...
