Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Jilin University in Changchun/China investigated a highly promising anode material for future high-performance batteries. The material is lithium lanthanum titanate with a perovskite crystal structure (LLTO). The researchers can improve the energy density, power density, charging rate, safety, and cycle life of batteries without requiring a decrease […]

Imperial College London researchers have demonstrated how machine learning could help design lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells with better performance. The new machine learning algorithm allows researchers to explore possible designs for the microstructure of fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries, before running 3D simulations that help researchers make changes to improve performance. Improvements could include […]

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) […]

Stanford University researchers have designed a new electrolyte for lithium metal batteries that could increase the driving range of electric cars. The improvement is enough that the press release suggests the new lithium-based electrolyte invented by Stanford University scientists could pave the way for the next generation of battery-powered electric vehicles. In a study published […]

University of Houston (UH) and Texas A&M University researchers have reported a structural supercapacitor electrode made from reduced graphene oxide and aramid nanofiber that is stronger and more versatile than conventional carbon-based electrodes. The explosion of mobile electronic devices, electric vehicles, drones and other technologies have driven demand for new lightweight materials that can provide […]
