  • Revisiting Rechargeable Lithium Metal Batteries: a Surprising Route to Safe Operation
    Lithium (Li) has long been known to be the best anode material for rechargeable batteries, however, lithium metal batteries (LMB) have never been successfully used in rechargeable applications due to dendrite formation, resulting in thermal runaway and fire or explosion. During charging, Li ions nonuniformly deposit onto the Li anode ...

  • New information in the wavefunction of primordial perturbations
    Modern cosmological data enables extensive tests of the degrees of freedom and interactions operating nearly 14 billion years ago. We will show how  a basic feature of quantum field theory -- enhancement of multipoint correlations -- enables a substantial improvement on our ability to constrain this early universe dynamics.  The ...
