Harvard University researchers are using physics to solve one of the biggest challenges in designing light-weight, long-lasting batteries: how to squeeze more energy into less space...
Experiments show that the friction between two surfaces depends on their history of contact and that this "memory" is reminiscent of the behavior of glasses...
