Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Jilin University in Changchun/China investigated a highly promising anode material for future high-performance batteries. The material is lithium lanthanum titanate with a perovskite crystal structure (LLTO). The researchers can improve the energy density, power density, charging rate, safety, and cycle life of batteries without requiring a decrease […]

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers have developed a new material for the battery anode. The material could enable long-range electric vehicles that can drive for hundreds of miles on a single charge, and electric planes called eVTOLs for fast, environmentally friendly commutes. In the pursuit of a rechargeable battery that can power electric vehicles (EVs) […]

Stanford University researchers have designed a new electrolyte for lithium metal batteries that could increase the driving range of electric cars. The improvement is enough that the press release suggests the new lithium-based electrolyte invented by Stanford University scientists could pave the way for the next generation of battery-powered electric vehicles. In a study published […]

University of Houston (UH) and Texas A&M University researchers have reported a structural supercapacitor electrode made from reduced graphene oxide and aramid nanofiber that is stronger and more versatile than conventional carbon-based electrodes. The explosion of mobile electronic devices, electric vehicles, drones and other technologies have driven demand for new lightweight materials that can provide […]

Tohoku University can offer a solution to the current strong demand to replace organic liquid electrolytes used in conventional rechargeable batteries, with solid-state ionic conductors which will enable the batteries to be safer and have higher energy density. To get there a lot of effort has been devoted to finding materials with superior ionic conductivities. […]
