Three-Dimensional Sulfur/Graphene Multifunctional Hybrid Sponges for Lithium-Sulfur Batteries with Large Areal Mass Loading : Scientific Reports : Nature Publishing Group

Three-Dimensional Sulfur/Graphene Multifunctional Hybrid Sponges for Lithium-Sulfur Batteries with Large Areal Mass Loading : Scientific Reports : Nature Publishing Group | Powering Next Generation of Mobile Devices | Scoop.it
In this communication, we introduce the concept of three dimensional (3D) battery electrodes to enhance the capacity per footprint area for lithium-sulfur battery. In such a battery, 3D electrode of sulfur embedded into porous graphene sponges (S-GS) was directly used as the cathode with large areal mass loading of sulfur (12 mg cm−2), approximately 6–12 times larger than that of most reports. The graphene sponges (GS) worked as a framework that can provide high electronic conductive network, abilities to absorb the polysulfides intermediate, and meanwhile mechanical support to accommodate the volume changes during charge and discharge. As a result, the S-GS electrode with 80 wt.% sulfur can deliver an extremely high areal specific capacitance of 6.0 mAh cm−2 of the 11th cycle, and maintain 4.2 mAh cm−2 after 300 charge−discharge cycles at a rate of 0.1C, representing an extremely low decay rate (0.08% per cycle after 300 cycles), which could be the highest areal specific capacity with comparable cycle stability among the rechargeable Li/S batteries reported ever.

6 Innovative Ways to Implement Beacons for Marketing | Street Fight

6 Innovative Ways to Implement Beacons for Marketing | Street Fight | Powering Next Generation of Mobile Devices | Scoop.it

Brick-and-mortar merchants know they need to step it up to compete against e-commerce retailers, and they know that proximity marketing with indoor positioning technology can be an effective mechanism for driving customer acquisition and retention. So why did a recent survey by Experian Data Quality show that geo-location is such a low priority for decision-makers, with only 20% of respondents listing geo-location as their “most important data priority”? It has to do with a lack of understanding.

 

While the term “beacon” has reached the mainstream, many local business owners still aren’t sure how to apply the technology in their own places of business. Even those merchants who know that proximity marketing could help drive sales still aren’t sure where to begin or what types of campaigns they can implement with beacons.

Here are six examples of innovative ways that businesses are implementing beacon technology right now.
