The metal-carbon dioxide battery is a promising and environmentally friendly technology and the study reveals a novel design […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s new discovery could finally usher the development of solid-state lithium batteries, which would be more lightweight, compact, and safe than current lithium batteries. The growth of metallic filaments called dendrites within the solid electrolyte has been a longstanding obstacle, but the new study explains how dendrites form and how to divert […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Texas at Austin researchers are tackling two of the bigger challenges facing electric vehicles: limited range and slow recharging. The researchers fabricated a new type of electrode for lithium-ion batteries that could unleash greater power and faster charging. They did this by creating thicker electrodes – the positively and negatively charged parts […]

Tohoku University research has resulted in a hybrid electrolyte that is both more stable while also retaining excellent conductivity. This should provide a safer polymeric solid electrolyte for Li-ion batteries with a myriad of applications. The research group’s paper, “Increasing the ionic conductivity and lithium-ion transport of photo-cross-linked polymer with hexagonal arranged porous film hybrids,” […]

A Pohang University of Science & Technology research team succeeded in developing an anode-free lithium battery. The design maximized energy density and improved energy density by 40%. The Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH) research team led by Professor Soojin Park and PhD candidate Sungjin Cho (Department of Chemistry) in collaboration with Professor Dong-Hwa […]
