A group of „working professionals“ students from the McCombs School of Business (https://www.mccombs.utexas.edu) visited the liquid metal battery lab at HZDR in frame of their international business trip and got an overview of SOLSTICE. Thanks for the interest and for the lively discussion! (Photo: HZDR / M. Giebel).
The 2nd SOLSTICE Consortium Meeting took place from 26th to 28th April 2022 at Politecnico di Torino, Italy. In total, 22 project members participated in the meeting on site and 18 participants attended online. During four technical workshops, the team discussed the current progress as well as open questions and…
The review on the fluid dynamics of liquid metal batteries written by scientists from the University of Rochester and HZDR received a recommendation by the Journal Club for Condensed Matter Physics. https://www.condmatjclub.org/?p=4549
On 13th March 2022, the MDR television news programme „Sachsenspiegel“ aired a feature on SOLSTICE where SOLSTICE researchers explain the development of a new low-temperature liquid metal battery unit (Photo: HZDR / Amac Garbe).
SOLSTICE is featured in the March 2022 issue of HZDR’s Research Magazine „entdeckt“ (Photo: HZDR / Amac Garbe). https://www.hzdr.de/db/Cms?pOid=65472
SOLSTICE has issued a new press release where Dr. Juhan Lee and the SOLSTICE team from HZDR talk about the development of a new low-temperature liquid metal battery unit that is characterized by its simple set-up, cost-efficient production and easy recyclability. https://www.hzdr.de/db/Cms?pOid=65450&pNid=3438
Scientists of HZDR have shown by numerical simulation that solutal and thermal convection appear in molten salt batteries and that their interplay is extremely complex. https://authors.elsevier.com/c/1eXk244xaCc3o
