New Materials Meet the Need for Better Batteries and Capacitors
Across the university, researchers are developing, testing, and deploying new materials for storing energy for the grid and the highway.
When Penn State's Millennium Science Complex opened its doors to researchers this fall, it inaugurated a new era of scientific discovery at the intersection of materials science, engineering, nanoscience and the life sciences at Penn State.
Researchers at Penn state are working with Norfolk Southern to develop a train engine with zero exhaust emissions.
