A Washington University in St. Louis team has developed a catalyst that can be used to both generate fuel and provide power. A single device that both generates hydrogen fuel and oxidant from water and, when a switch is flipped, converts the fuel and oxygen into electricity and water, has a host of benefits for […]

A team of University of California – San Diego materials scientists and chemists has determined the proper stack pressure that lithium metal batteries, or LMBs, need to be subjected to during battery operation in order to produce optimal performance. Keep in mind that Lithium Metal and Lithium Ion batteries are quite different. The team, which […]

A research team from Brown University and the University of Maryland has developed a new material for use in solid-state batteries that’s derived from an unlikely source: trees. In pursuit of batteries that deliver more power and operate more safely, researchers are working to replace the liquids commonly used in today’s lithium ion batteries with […]

A Tohoku University research team has developed liquid-sulfur/sulfide composite cathodes that enable high-rate magnesium batteries. Magnesium rechargeable batteries show immense promise for a greener future because of their energy density, safety, and cost. But the lack of high-performance cathode materials has impeded their development. Magnesium rechargeable batteries (MRBs), where high-capacity Mg metal is used as […]

University of California – San Diego engineers have created a new type of battery that weaves two promising battery sub-fields into a single battery. The battery uses both a solid state electrolyte and an all-silicon anode, making it a silicon all-solid-state battery. The initial rounds of tests show that the new battery is safe, long […]
