Nevertheless, swapping calorie-rich drinks for water can help cut daily caloric intake, potentially assisting in weight loss.
Ion migration in perovskite materials is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it can lead to device degradation and performance loss. On the other hand, it can be exploited for new applications, such as energy harvesting and storage. Latest advances in ion migration research for simultaneous energy harvesting and storage: In a recent study, […]
