Can Black Panther’s Vibranium Ever Be Real?

Posted on February 27, 2018

DNI faculty, Prof. Yury Gogotsi, is featured on website GIZMODO discussing the fictional material Vibranium, as featured in the recent popular Marvel Black Panther Movie. Prof. Gogotsi states: “We can say that with a high probability no natural material can have those properties. As we know that all the same elements exist in the universe as on our planet earth, no mineral of pure metal is expected to have properties of Vibranium. Some of the properties of vibranium can be…

New Energy Storage Technologies for Enabling Renewables at CHF

Posted on January 12, 2018

Prof. Yury Gogotsi and Prof. M. Stanley Whittingham, professor of chemistry and materials science and engineering, SUNY Binghamton presented “New Energy Storage Technologies for Enabling Renewables” at the Chemical Heritage Foundation.  Many systems and devices we use every day, including our cell phones and laptops, require batteries. Electric cars, solar and wind farms, and off-grid homes need much larger batteries. And we expect smart clothes and the internet to change how we live and how we gather and consume information in the near…
