Swiss EMPA researchers have succeeded in doubling the electrochemical stability of water with a special saline solution bringing us one step closer to using the technology commercially. This research could very well lead to a basis for a future with particularly inexpensive rechargeable batteries. The press release begins by asking during the hunt to find […]

Northwestern University researchers have found a way to make a lithium battery last longer with more capacity and cheaper. The team used iron and oxygen to simultaneously drive the electrochemical reaction. Experience suggests Christopher Wolverton’s super lithium-rich battery should not work. For one, the novel battery uses iron, an inexpensive metal that has notoriously failed […]

A new insight into battery charging is a technique capable of determining lithium metal plating during lithium ion battery charging that supports development of improved electric vehicles. The new technique developed by researchers at Technische Universität München, Forschungszentrum Jülich, and RWTH Aachen University, published in Elsevier’s Materials Today, provides a unique insight into how the […]

The University of Waterloo researchers breakthrough involves the use of negative electrodes (the anode) made of lithium metal, a material with the potential to dramatically increase battery storage capacity. Quanquan Pang, who led the research while he was a PhD candidate at Waterloo said, “This will mean cheap, safe, long-lasting batteries that give people much […]

Forschungszentrum Juelich researchers with American Oak Ridge National Laboratory scientists have now successfully observed with nano-scale precision how deposits form at the iron electrode during operation. A deeper understanding of the charging and discharging reactions is viewed as the key for the further development of this type of rechargeable battery to gain market maturity. The […]
