Research leader Dorthe Bomholdt Ravnsbæk of the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Pharmacy at University of Southern Denmark pointed out, “The Na-ion battery is still under development, and researchers are working on increasing its service life, lowering its charging time and making batteries that can deliver many watts.” Now the race is on to develop […]

Rice University engineers have built full lithium-ion batteries with silicon anodes and an alumina layer to protect the cathodes from degrading. By limiting their energy density, the batteries promise excellent stability for transportation and grid storage use. The slim layer of the metal oxide applied to common cathodes by engineers at Rice University’s Brown School […]

Scientists’ research at Tokyo University of Science led by Prof Shinichi Komaba discusses the recent advances, promises, and limitations of potassium-ion batteries. Concerns about the scarcity of lithium and other materials necessary in the now-ubiquitous lithium-ion batteries have recently driven many researchers to look for alternatives, such as sodium and potassium. Our modern lifestyle would […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign engineers have developed a solid polymer-based electrolyte that can self-heal after damage. Plus the material can also be recycled without the use of harsh chemicals or high temperatures. The new study, which could help manufacturers produce recyclable, self-healing commercial batteries, is published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. […]

Korea’s Pohang University of Science & Technology engineers have developed a three-dimensional monolithic organic battery electrode. With the launch of wearable devices and smartphones that require high capacity of electricity such as foldable phones and 5G phones, the interest in batteries is increasing and various battery types are getting developed. For example, think of flexible […]
