What if a battery lasted forever? Could it power a car? Could it power your home? Could it power change?
At the University of California, Irvine, we’re counting on it. UCI chemistry student Mya Le Thai has developed a technology that could potentially help a battery hold unlimited charges.
While experimenting in the lab, she made a remarkable discovery that will have a huge impact on future energy consumption.
By coating the gold nanowires in a thin gel, the filaments of the capacitor retain their properties under hundreds of thousands of charges.
Call it a hunch. Call it a happy accident. We call it the Power of I.When you’re given the opportunity to explore and follow your convictions, when dedication and inspiration cross paths, amazing things will happen.
