The column “Let's talk about science” on “VO” is published on Monday morning - as a gymnastics for the brain at the very beginning of the working week.


In Switzerland, announced the creation of a flexible battery: may be suitable for a "smart" military uniform


This time we will focus on the invention of Swiss scientists from the Technical University of Zurich. A group of scientists reports that they managed to create a battery that can change shape. It can be twisted, stretched by a certain percentage, to a certain extent, crumple.

According to the head of the team of scientists, Marcus Niederberger, the thickness of the latest flexible battery is approximately equal to the thickness of the film. The electric current from the battery to the load in the circuit will not stop flowing if it is bent, twisted, or other similar manipulations are performed.

A flexible battery consisting of several layers includes electrolyte.

It is planned that such a battery can be used for mobile devices, which are also planned to be made flexible over time. In addition, a battery of this kind may be suitable, for example, to create so-called “smart” clothes (military uniforms). According to some reports, she is “not afraid” of moisture and is able to share energy, being sewn into the fabric base.

Swiss scientists consider medicine to be the main area of ​​use of their invention. According to Niederberger, on its basis it will be possible to create trace elements that allow to diagnose a person’s condition.

It should be noted that in recent years, several laboratories around the world have also announced the creation of "soft batteries". In particular, Panasonic specialists announced a similar development in the 2017 year (photo above), however their battery can only be bent, but it cannot be stretched and twisted.

    Interesting, in some cases, practical ....
    That's when they will talk about super-capacities, MAKE !!!
    It will be a SUPER BREAK !!!
    The whole world is waiting .... well, if you thought about security, reliability, in advance.

      Everything is ready for super-batteries, but so far they are not pulling, or the oil workers, who own the rights to most capacitive technologies, are dragging out time.

        Yeah. Just the oil industry. And look at the patent database - class H01M - weak? Patents are owned by most HIT manufacturing companies and microelectronics manufacturers. Tired of world conspiracy theories. For some reason, the oil industry did not prevent the creation of nuclear energy, biofuels, wind and solar energy, etc. And what is the reason for the oil industry to slow down the building of new batteries? A battery does not give energy: it only temporarily stores it.
        As for the "super-batteries": Civilian, what is it? Energizer? Or something else from the field of advertising? Kindergarten, by God.

      SUPER BREAK !!!

      And on what basis is this breakthrough possible?
      Modern technology and science have not yet come up with anything cardinal.
      I understand that long-lasting batteries and accumulators can be created only on the basis of radioactive elements or renewable energy from the environment ... so far nothing of the kind has been invented in the technology world.

        Long-lasting batteries are only as long as they have low power and high price.

          Long-lasting batteries are only available as long as they have a small capacity.

          The battery life is short ...
          Now, if it was at least a year of continuous operation of such a battery, that would be already interesting.
          Although information flashed that such batteries were invented both by us and by the Americans ... but it is not known at what stage these developments are.

          An excellent example of Russian science journalism with pearls like "Ni63 are made from diamonds", a battery can last 100 years, etc. A continuous "swift jack" and squalor.
          The phone will not work on such a battery - unless it is made the size of a truck.

        I DO NOT KNOW! I just indicated where the novelties \ "miracle" are very much waiting for EVERYONE! There are many more topics where no less is expected! But such a wave was raised, on the topic of energy sources, in advance that it would be "EXPLOSION" !!!

    Oh, how many of these batteries were. And charging in a minute, with a return "for centuries" and almost a macro-nuclear power plant in your pocket, and among the people, lithium has been running for how many years. Even Skolkovo and Anatoly are unable to come up with a replacement laughing

    If so, then such a battery can be used not only in shape. But for example, in submarines, knowing the limitation of the space thereof. In general, it will be a big breakthrough. We are waiting for confirmation of information from other sources

    There are already quite real elements of the form - for example, insoles in heated shoes, enough for a few hours, there is a lot of power and is not required.

    Replaceable batteries, so it's quite possible to have a couple of sets of stock.
    So flexible for them are well suited.
    there are other types, and not only gloves, clothes, there is a ready market for such batteries

    The issue with batteries is not their flexibility or softness, but their weight and their capacity. If a standard size battery with a car battery appeared, this would be a breakthrough.

        Thats exactly what I mean. In his youth, inadvertently threw a mask. Suit on the battery. A week later he took it - and the jacket went in pieces in his hands. This electrolyte vapor did the trick. It's a pity to tears - and the costume is German, four-color! It was.

    If flexibility is chosen for the main criterion of merits, then this is a pipe for their scientists. In fact, the struggle is to achieve a high energy density in batteries, in small volumes of space. That is, in one monoblock it is necessary to concentrate high voltage and current. Such a solution to achieve any energy densities we can obviously offer only -we. The solutions are simple, but think in terms of a completely different scientific approach.

      It is very welcome to note that in our case it is possible to use not a bipolar system of interaction and creation of a magnetic field strength, but a multipolar one. That is, a complex of various processes with a potential difference can be included in the system of work. Moreover, all of them will form a common basic potential.

    Such batteries already exist and are used in a tablet that tends to bend in half.

    In 1983, while working at the Design Bureau of the Sarapul Radio Plant, I was on a business trip to Saratov at the plant of chemical power sources to order a large-capacity battery in the form of a belt (flexible) for the "Arbalet" radio station for the Airborne Forces. THIRTY SIX years ago, FLEXIBLE batteries were produced in the USSR, except for "rubber galoshes", as the dear president is trying to convince us.

      These were NKPL batteries, and that plant at that time was called SZSCHA. True, they did not go into the series (in a flexible version). At that time I worked at the NIIHIT, an institute that developed HIT. SZZCHA were our neighbors, separated only by a fence.

    Most likely we are talking about a supercapacitor.
    Designed battery that can be bent, stretched and even cut
