[HCS-2 Material: Terminator of the Shuttle Effect]
Theses that get highlighted were often the most outstanding research results in the journal issue.
As for Lu Zhous thesis, not only was it selected to be on the cover of the journal, but the reviewer evaluation from Professor Bawendi was also in the scientific review section.
However, the evaluation was very short
[Frankly, I didnt trust the data in the thesis until I did the experiment myself.]
This short evaluation caused someone to be ashamed after reading it
Far away at Binghamton University.
The latest issue of the Science journal as well as an experiment report was on the table.
Professor Stanley sat in front of the desk.
He looked muddled and in disbelief.
Woods looked at the experiment report and sighed. We lost.
Professor Stanleys lips moved as if he wanted to say something. However, he didnt speak.
He received the latest issue of the journal three days ago.
He couldnt believe that Lu Zhou could produce such a great research result in such a short amount of time.
Especially the data in the experiment, it was like the data was faked.
Like Professor Bawendi, he repeated the experiment.
The results were perfect enough to make him hopeless.
Although there were some fluctuations in the data due to the differences in chemicals and equipment used, the general outcome of the experiment was consistent with Lu Zhous thesis data
What was the premise of science?
What made something industrially applicable?
Able to produce stable outputs.
There was no doubt that once the HCS-2 met these two requirements, the market would undoubtedly prefer the HCS-2 material.
Professor Stanley couldnt help but look bitter.
His experiments couldnt be repeated; this was his weakness.
Although he had been trying to remedy his results, the academic community and market were becoming impatient. Since the HCS-2 material came out, major energy companies had already begun to design lithium-sulfur batteries in accordance with the standards of the HCS-2 material.
It seemed that his attempts to remedy it were too late
However, Professor Stanley still couldnt bear losing six months of his efforts.
He couldnt help but speak, Give me half a year! I promise I can come up with a solution.
Theres no point, my dear Professor Stanley. Woods said, Unless you can do better than him, what is the point? Also
Woods paused for a moment before continuing, Also, HCS-3 or even HCS-4 might have come out by the time your research results are out.
Professor Stanley opened his mouth and couldnt speak.
Woods didnt say anything. He merely patted Stanleys shoulder and left.
The birth of the HCS-2 material caused an earthquake in the energy industry.
After the lithium dendrites problem was solved, the market went back to traditional lithium batteries, and these were seen in phones and laptops.
Many people were looking forward to what lithium-sulfur batteries could bring.
And now, this dream could become a reality.
Many OEM manufacturers that helped 3C electronics had completed the transformation of the production line and adjusted the production capacity of lithium-ion batteries into lithium batteries. They had to continue to design new capacity adjustment plans and start preparing to embrace the new era of lithium-sulfur batteries
The most fortunate thing about Lu Zhous thesis publication was that he didnt have to deal with patent licensing and pricing problems anymore. They were all handled by the management at Star Sky Technology.
Otherwise, Lu Zhou would have to deal with all kinds of patent inquire calls
On a sunny morning, at Lake Carnegie near the Princeton campus, a small drone flew past the kayaking team.
The kayakers cheered and whistled as the small drone hovered around Lake Carnegie before it flew back to the park and landed on the grass.
There were several students sitting on the park bench, and all of them were looking at the computer screen.
Oh, Jesus, what did we get?
Christine didnt wear a bra!
This is huge
Oh, send me a copy of the photo.
Obviously, these guys were up to no good taking photos near Lake Carnegie.
Lu Zhou stood next to them, and he warned the group of boys.
Jimmy, I promised to be your technical consultant to help you win the competition, I didnt promise to help you to infringe on others privacy.
Sorry, professor, I will delete the photo. The guy with a face full of freckles lowered his head and deleted all of the photos in front of Lu Zhou.
Although it would be cool to share the photos on social media, it wouldnt be fun for the victims in the photographs.
Jimmy was the group leader, so he had to be responsible for his friends.
Lu Zhou made sure the photos were deleted before he looked at his watch. He then said, Flight time was 30 minutes, look at the remaining battery.
Jimmy placed his laptop aside and got up from the park bench.
Okay, professor, Ill go right now.
Lu Zhou said, Call me coach.
Jimmy stood up straight and was laughed at by his friends. He then walked over to the drone sitting on the grass.
It was already summer, so it wasnt just football competitions anymore, there were a variety of other interesting competitions.
For example, the drone design competition was one of them. This was a popular competition among American universities; it was just like the robot and artificial intelligence competitions.
Although the engineering department at Princeton was nothing special, these engineering students were still very capable. They made the drones themselves and purchased the materials online or from the professors laboratories.
Lu Zhou was the consultant and also participated in the creation of this drone.
It was quite a coincidence that Lu Zhou became a consultant for these students.
These students originally went to Professor Chiric to ask about the battery of the drone and how to increase the battery performance. Professor Chiric immediately recommended Lu Zhou to them.
Fortunately, Lu Zhou had just finished his experiments and had a lot of samples left over. He used equipment from the Frick Chemistry Laboratory and helped the boys to replace the positive electrode material in the battery.
Although this kind of DIY process couldnt match industry standards, it was considered high tech among college students.
It more than doubled the battery performance of the drone.
This project was very interesting; it was like a new world was opened to Lu Zhou when he saw his research result flying in the sky.
Compared to football and rugby, Lu Zhou felt like this kind of intellectual hobby was more suitable for him.
Then, because Lu Zhou was very interested in technical problems, he gained a lot of inspiration from talking with the students. Therefore, he accepted their invitation and became their club consultant.
Because of this, he gained another title: Chief Consultant of the Princeton University Drone Club.
Of course, even though he was a consultant, he didnt actually have to do much work. The students knew that he was busy and didnt bother him much.
At most, Lu Zhou would spend a few hours on the weekends to discuss some technical problems with them and watch them fly the drone.
While Lu Zhou was watching the students flying the drone, a woman with blonde hair and dressed in business attire walked to the park.
She had an assistant and photographer following her. Obviously, she was not from the university.
Lu Zhou noticed this woman walking toward him, and he asked, Who are you?
The lady smiled and handed him her business card.
Hello, Professor Lu, I am a reporter from the Times Magazine, are you free right now?
