Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers propose that an advanced manufacturing approach for lithium-ion batteries promises to significantly slash the cost of the most widely used type of rechargeable batteries while also improving their performance and making them easier to recycle. Researchers at MIT and at a spinoff company called 24M with a pilot manufacturing plant […]

Researchers in Sweden and the US have described a method for making elastic high-capacity batteries from wood pulp. Using nanocellulose broken down from tree fibers, the scientists have produced an elastic, foam-like battery material that can withstand shock and stress. Max Hamedi, a researcher at KTH and Harvard University explained, “It is possible to make […]

Stanford University scientists have created a new carbon material that significantly improves the performance of batteries and supercapacitors. Zhenan Bao, the senior author of the study and a professor of chemical engineering at Stanford said, “We have developed a ‘designer carbon’ that is both versatile and controllable. Our study shows that this material has exceptional […]

University of Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology chemists have discovered the key reaction that takes place in sodium-air batteries that could pave the way for development of the so-called holy grail of electrochemical energy storage. Researchers led by Professor Linda Nazar who holds the Canada Research Chair in Solid State Energy Materials, have described a key […]

University of Maryland researchers have found extremely small batteries built inside nanopores show that properly scaled structures can use the full theoretical capacity of the charge storage material. Is looks like the case is being made that anode cathode and battery shape and dimensions are ripe for further development. The results and lab sample batteries […]
