OSA | Monolithic ultra-high-Q lithium niobate microring resonator
so lithium niobate makes for great resonators for fiber optic networks, but is chemically inert so you can't etch it easily. Now, it looks like they've achieved usable dry plasma etching to make waveguides/resonators.

Lithium Lorentz Force Accelerator Research
Oddball electric thruster whose operating mechanic isn't fully understood. Seems to be able to use both the electric and magnetic fields at the same time for better efficiency, and so far it seems to be power limited as far as scaling goes (but something about 50% efficiency in context, so where does the rest of energy go? heat?)

Solar Thermal Electrochemical Photo (STEP) Carbon Capture could Reduce Atmospheric CO2 to Pre-industrial Levels in Ten Years
Using an externally electrically driven molten lithium carbonate cell to crack CO2 down to C or CO, CO being fed into synthetic fuel processes, C for solid state long term sequestration/storage or as nanotube feedstock. Uses Solar CPV with thermal recovery to heat the cells and drive them electrically. Absolutely no mention of how the CO2 would be captured for input into the electrolysis cell (basically the same as a MSFC fuelcell, only without the hydrogen fuel) though.

Daiwa to Sell Residences With Li-ion Batteries in Japan -- Tech-On!
A step in the right direction, doing distributed grid energy storage. The corporate angle being the cost of storage is offloaded to the consumer directly rather than the power utility. But, they still want to open the damn windows, and japanese people will culturally oblige. How about a thermal energy store below the house instead.

BBC NEWS | Health | Lithium in water 'curbs suicide'
So some japanese researchers finally put 2 and 2 together and find coking up the populace leads to a happy populace. Though I wonder how that plays out against the amount of canned beverages people in japan drink, compared to straight tap water. Forgetting the ethical issues of subtly and purposely poisoning the populace with a heavy metal, what about the ethical issues of what would effectively be state sponsored mind control? This would be the thin edge of a wedge leading to mandatory cognitive enhancement drug taking "for the benefit of society and the economy" isn't it?
