Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory researchers have developed a new material for the battery anode. The material could enable long-range electric vehicles that can drive for hundreds of miles on a single charge, and electric planes called eVTOLs for fast, environmentally friendly commutes. In the pursuit of a rechargeable battery that can power electric vehicles (EVs) […]

Ohio State University researchers have built a more efficient, more reliable potassium-oxygen battery, a step toward a potential solution for energy storage on the nation’s power grid and longer-lasting batteries in cell phones and laptops. In a study published in the journal Batteries and Supercaps, researchers from Ohio State University detailed their findings centering around […]

Purdue University research has suggested pollen carbon as a potential use for anodes in lithium-ion batteries. “Our findings have demonstrated that renewable pollens could produce carbon architectures for anode applications in energy storage devices,” said Vilas Pol, an associate professor in the School of Chemical Engineering and the School of Materials Engineering at Purdue University. […]

Dr. Grant Norton, professor in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering is leading researchers at Washington State University in developing a nanoneedle tin (Sn) anode material formed as “Tin Whiskers” for Lithium-ion batteries. Elemental Sn is an attractive high-performance anode material because of its high theoretical specific capacity (992 mAh g-1) and high operating […]
