Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Scientists at Stanford University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Toyota Research Institute have found how to accurately predict the useful lifespan of lithium-ion batteries, used in devices from mobile phones to electric cars. Its an advance that could accelerate battery development and improve manufacturing. If manufacturers of cell-phone batteries could tell which […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have found a new way to make cathodes for lithium batteries, offering improvements in the amount of power for both a given weight and a given volume. Researchers around the globe have been on a quest for batteries that pack a punch but are smaller and lighter than today’s versions, […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Cornell University scientists’ new research advances the design of solid-state batteries, a technology that is inherently safer and more energy-dense than today’s lithium-ion batteries, which rely on flammable liquid electrolytes for fast transfer of chemical energy stored in molecular bonds to electricity. By starting with liquid electrolytes and then transforming them into solid polymers […]

Brazil’s Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo is adding strength to case for lithium air batteries. Current lithium ion battery technology will probably not be able to handle the coming decades’ huge demand for energy. It is estimated that by 2050, electricity will make up 50% of the world’s energy mix. […]

A Tohoku University research team has developed new materials for supercapacitors with higher voltage and better stability than other materials. Supercapacitors are rechargeable energy storage devices with a broad range of applications, from machinery to smart meters. They offer many advantages over batteries, including faster charging and longer lifespans, but they are not so good […]
