Université de Genève researchers have developed a new material that improves the performance of solid-state sodium batteries. Sodium chemistry is a less dangerous and a more durable alternative to lithium. The future of battery technologies could lie in sodium. Sodium chemistry could be more sustainable than lithium, which currently powers most of our devices and […]

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory scientists have made realistic close-ups of a plump, squishy layer called the solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI) that forms on lithium metal anodes as a result of chemical reactions with the electrolyte. Knowing what it really looks will give them a new way to improve next-gen battery design. Lithium metal batteries could store […]

Tokyo Institute of Technology researchers have brought all solid state batteries one step closer to becoming the powerhouse of next-generation electronics. The researchers from Tokyo Tech, AIST, and Yamagata University have introduced a strategy to restore the batteries low electrical resistance. They also explore the underlying reduction mechanism, paving the way for a more fundamental […]

National Korea Maritime and Ocean University scientists have developed a novel co-doped carbon material for the anode of seawater batteries (SWBs). Despite the many potential applications of seawater batteries SWBs, the limited performance of available materials has hindered their commercialization. The straightforward synthesis route and the high performance of the developed anode material could incite […]
