Graphite is widely used as an anode material for lithium ion batteries. Lithium atoms are stored with a well defined periodicity, called "stage" between carbon planes. The standard model describes the staging with pseudo-infinite lithium planes alternating with empty planes. Daumas and ... More »
The absence of friction (a.k.a. superglide) certainly sounds appealing to all skiers. Some boundaries can indeed have this property. At L_Sim laboratory we have simulated the behavior of such a system, and the experimental observation was made in collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory ... More »
