Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher’s new approach could help solve the longstanding problem of dendrite formation, which has hampered the development of new solid-state lithium-ion batteries. As researchers push the boundaries of battery design, seeking to pack ever greater amounts of power and energy into a given amount of space or weight, one of the […]

Happy New Year! DOE/Argonne National Laboratory researchers have turned to the power of machine learning and artificial intelligence to dramatically accelerate battery discovery. The press release likens designing new batteries with the best molecular building blocks for battery components to trying to create a recipe for a new kind of cake, when you have billions […]

Stanford researchers report that they have taken a big step toward designing a pure lithium anode – an accomplishment that battery designers have been trying to do for decades. The group’s paper has been published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Chemical batteries have three basic components: an electrolyte to provide electrons, an anode to discharge […]
