Batterie migliori se le fanno i virus

Link: Beyond Nano Breakthrough, MIT Team Quietly Builds Virus-Based Batteries – Popular Mechanics.

"What we’re working on is not thinking about a particular device application, but trying to improve the quality of the anode and cathode materials—using biology just to make a higher quality material for energy density," Belcher says. "We haven’t ruled out cars. That’s a lot of amplification. But right now the thing is trying to make the best material possible, and if we get a really great material, then we have to think about how do you scale it."

Al MIT hanno fatto batterie con densita’ di energia molto superiore alle attuali sfruttando a virus ingegnerizzati per non riprodursi e per attirare sostanze desiderate (quali l’ossido di cobalto). in questo modo si porducono con grande qualità anodi e catodi di dimensioni nanometriche.

Adesso sono focalizzati sulla qualita’ del materiale, poi penseranno ai volumi.
