Researchers have successfully increased the lifespan and stability of solid-state lithium-ion batteries, creating a viable approach for future widespread usage. The researchers have successfully increased the lifespan and stability of solid-state lithium-ion batteries, creating a viable approach for future widespread usage with a design from the University of Surrey that means they are less likely […]

A research team led out of Tianjin University replaced the traditional graphite anode in a lithium-ion battery with a bumpy carbon-based material, which maintains its rechargeable storage capacity down to -31 F. When temperatures fall below freezing, cellphones need to be recharged frequently, and electric cars have shorter driving ranges. This is because their lithium-ion […]

A Rice University study suggests that lithium batteries would benefit from more porous electrodes with better-aligned particles that don’t limit lithium distribution. At the micro and nano scale resolution looking at a lithium battery electrode, you’d see the level of charge at every scale is highly uneven. This is not good for the battery’s health. […]

Argonne National Laboratory researchers have uncovered a new avenue for overcoming the performance decline that occurs with repeated cycling in the cathodes of sodium ion batteries. This discovery could find applications in batteries for transportation and the electric grid. Battery-powered vehicles have made a significant dent in the transportation market. But that market still needs […]

Texas A&M University scientists use quantum methods to predict Lithium-metal (Li-metal) batteries great potential for packing more significant amounts of energy than the current lithium-ion batteries. For example, a Li-metal electric battery in a car could travel more miles, and a Li-metal phone battery could have longer battery life. However, the metal surface of Li-metal […]
