Nano-windmill for high-performance batteries
High-performance batteries will allow for major technological innovations. In order to achieve high-performance batteries, we are trying to control the nano-scale motion of charge in materials. In this talk, I will describe a nano-scale 'windmill' which can control the motion of charge with high precision.
