  • Patent number: 10938022
    Abstract: A magnesium-ion battery includes a solid, mechanically flexible polymer-based anode, a solid, mechanically flexible polymer-based cathode, and a polymer gel electrolyte in contact with the anode and the cathode. An electrode can include bismuth nanostructure powder and an electrolyte binder, or tungsten disulfide and an electrolyte binder.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: May 31, 2019
    Date of Patent: March 2, 2021
    Assignee: Arizona Board of Regents on behalf of Arizona State University
    Inventors: Hongbin Yu, Todd Houghton

  • Patent number: 10390698
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a composite prepared by dispersing silver flakes in a polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), phosphoric acid (H3PO4), and poly(3,4-ethyl-ene-dioxythiophene) (PEDOT):poly(styrene sulfonic acid) (PSS) polymer mixture. The polymer blend can provides conductive pathways between the silver flakes, leading to superior electrical properties even at large deformations.
