People in California do not purchase electric vehicles because they are cool, they can buy and use buy EVs because they live in a warm climate. Conventional lithium-ion batteries cannot be rapidly charged […]

University of Akron’s Professor Dr. Yu Zhu’s research group is trying to prevent if a powerhouse of energy – a lithium battery – failed. An electric or hybrid car would be rendered useless and a much-needed biomedical device would hamper or endanger a patient’s health. The power source for things like implanted medical devices, electric […]

Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have found new evidence suggesting that batteries based on sodium and potassium hold promise as a potential alternative to lithium-based batteries. From electric cars that travel hundreds of miles on a single charge to chainsaws as mighty as gas-powered versions, new products hit the market each year that take advantage […]

Brookhaven National Laboratory scientists have synthesized a new cathode material from iron fluoride that surpasses the capacity limits of traditional lithium-ion batteries. Scientists are searching for ways to improve lithium-ion batteries, the most common type of battery found in home electronics and a promising solution for grid-scale energy storage. Increasing the energy density of lithium-ion […]

North Carolina State University researchers have now discovered that water is performing a different role than anyone anticipated in a material with atomically thin layers of water that holds promise for battery to pseudo capacitor energy storage technologies. The finding was possible due to a new atomic force microscopy (AFM) method that measures the sub-nanoscale […]
