      [ Focus on Chemical Machinery Equipment Network ] The laboratory is a place where experiments are conducted, and a good laboratory scientific research environment is of great significance to nurturing science and developing science and technology.
    For the scientific research instrument industry, the development of laboratories is a complementary process.
    On the one hand, the development of instruments can help laboratory scientific research to be carried out better; on the other hand, the progress of instruments is also inseparable from the scientific research assistance of the laboratory.
    So what are the relevant developments in the laboratory field that deserve attention in the past year?

    Department of Energy Pacific Northwest National Laboratory team makes batteries more efficient

      From mobile phones and tablets to electric vehicles, the use of batteries is now very popular, and people's demands for battery energy, lifespan, and safety are also increasing.
    Because of this, how to make the battery have a longer life, more sufficient energy and reduce the production cost of the battery has become the direction of the researchers' continuous efforts, and for the lithium battery we are familiar with, it is undoubtedly a feasible way to improve the battery's cathode.
    The breakthrough.

     

      Just in 2020, lithium batteries have achieved a certain degree of technological breakthroughs.
    Scientists at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) of the US Department of Energy used single crystal materials with high nickel content as the cathode, allowing lithium batteries to take into account energy to a certain extent.
    And longevity.
    This result was also published in the journal "Science" on December 11.

     

      Of course, this research still has a long way to go, such as solving the stability problem of large energy storage caused by high nickel content, and this problem is currently the direction that the PNNL team is attacking.
    Once successful, this achievement will not only bring changes to lithium batteries, but also promote the development of materials science technology.

      Artificial intelligence has always been a hot topic in recent years, and the development of computers has changed our lives for a long time in the past.
    So what will happen if artificial intelligence is integrated into computers?
    In 2020, Zhejiang University and Zhijiang Laboratory jointly developed a brain-like computer (Darwin Mouse) and equipped it with an operating system specially developed for brain-like computers, Darwin OS (DarwinOS).

     

      It is reported that this computer has subverted the logic of traditional computers to a certain extent.
    Through the combination of hardware and software, the computer can really "think".
    The research team built 792 Darwin second-generation brain-like chips on this computer like building blocks, and learned from the brain's thinking logic, allowing the computer to realize information access, retrieval, and learning by simulating the hippocampal memory mechanism.

      The energy environment has always been a serious topic in the field of scientific research, and in the face of warming and its negative effects, researchers are constantly seeking suitable solutions.
    In 2020, the Cryosphere Laboratory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences conducted an experiment in the Abada Ancient Glacier Scenic Area in Sichuan-a glacier "covering quilt", and the result of the experiment was successful in slowing down the melting of the glacier.
    It is understood that the experiment involves knowledge of "geoengineering", and the process of the experiment is simply to cover the glacier with a geotextile of 5-8 mm, thereby slowing the rate of glacier melting.
    The conclusion shows that this method can slow down the ablation rate by more than 50% and the cost per 500 square meters can be controlled at about 1,000 yuan.

     

      Due to the epidemic, the progress of laboratory scientific research in 2020 has been somewhat affected, but in this case, many amazing technologies have been born.
    Whether it is mentioned in the previous article or not mentioned, what can be known is that it is precisely because of the continuous efforts of various large and small laboratories and scientific researchers in various fields that science and technology can continue to develop as it is today.
