Bacteriophages Used To Create Hyperdense Materials.

The Wired (8/26, Carmody) “Gadget Lab” blog reports that researchers in Angela Belcher’s Biomolecular Materials Group at MIT have used “bacteriophages to build – really, evolve – hyperdense materials from ionic particles,” and “this week Mark Allen, a postdoc in the group, outlined the use of a new cathode made with iron flouride.” Among the potential applications Allen discussed were “wearable battery packs for soliders, first responders, and civilians; tiny rechargable batteries for portable electronics including smart phones, laptops, and GPS; [and] unmanned aerial vehicles, which require lightweight, long-lasting power sources.”
