New insight into how lithium-rich cathode materials for high energy EV batteries store charge at high voltages

1 month 3 weeks ago

High energy storage batteries for EVs need high capacity battery cathodes. New lithium-excess magnesium-rich cathodes are expected to replace existing nickel-rich cathodes but understanding how the magnesium and oxygen accommodate charge storage at high voltages is critical for their successful adaption. Research led by WMG, University of Warwick in collaboration with U.S. researchers employed a range of X-ray studies to determine that the oxygen ions are facilitating the charge storage rather than the magnesium ions.

Confessions of the Flesh - Fourth volume of Michel Foucault's History of Sexuality published in English

1 month 3 weeks ago

"He spoke of his work as a ‘history of the present’, an examination of how we got to where we are, how what is currently taken for granted was made possible. With the publication of his lecture courses, and now this book, we are continually finding new work to explore and think with him.” The publication today of the first English translation of Confessions of the Flesh has been welcomed by Professor Stuart Elden, one of the leading experts on French philosopher Michel Foucault’s work.

New research finds no evidence that schools are playing a significant role in driving spread of the Covid-19 virus in the community

1 month 3 weeks ago

New research led by epidemiologists at the University of Warwick has found that there is no significant evidence that schools are playing a significant role in driving the spread of the Covid-19 disease in the community, particularly in primary schools. However, careful continued monitoring may be required as schools re-open to stay well informed about the effect they have upon community incidence.

Child brain tumours can be classified by advanced imaging and AI

1 month 3 weeks ago

Diffusion weighted imaging and machine learning can successfully classify the diagnosis and characteristics of common types of paediatric brain tumours a UK-based multi-centre study, including WMG at the University of Warwick has found. This means that the tumour can be characterised and treated more efficiently.

WMG commends the advances to UK innovation, skills and industrial growth made by the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund and supports NAO recommendations to further improve impact

2 months 1 week ago

WMG at the University of Warwick has welcomed today’s National Audit Office report on the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, supporting their positive assessment of the fund, and backed their calls for a more streamlined approach to innovation funding, alongside a greater emphasis on the importance of innovation for regional development and skills growth.
