Curtin University research has found a simple and affordable method to determine which chemicals and types of metals are best used to store and supply energy. This may be a breakthrough for any battery-run devices and technologies reliant on the fast and reliable supply of electricity, including smart phones and tablets. Lead author Associate Professor […]

University of California – San Diego engineers have created a new type of battery that weaves two promising battery sub-fields into a single battery. The battery uses both a solid state electrolyte and an all-silicon anode, making it a silicon all-solid-state battery. The initial rounds of tests show that the new battery is safe, long […]

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 […]

An international research team has now developed concrete guidelines for how lithium metal batteries should be charged and operated, maximizing efficiency while minimizing the risk of short circuits. There are high hopes for the next generation of high energy-density lithium metal batteries, but before they can be used in our vehicles, there are crucial problems […]

Rice University engineers have built full lithium-ion batteries with silicon anodes and an alumina layer to protect the cathodes from degrading. By limiting their energy density, the batteries promise excellent stability for transportation and grid storage use. The slim layer of the metal oxide applied to common cathodes by engineers at Rice University’s Brown School […]
