For years, researchers have aimed to learn more about a group of metal oxides that show promise as key materials for the next generation of lithium-ion batteries because of their mysterious ability to store significantly more energy than should be possible. An international research team, co-led by The University of Texas at Austin, has cracked […]

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 […]

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign engineers have developed a solid polymer-based electrolyte that can self-heal after damage. Plus the material can also be recycled without the use of harsh chemicals or high temperatures. The new study, which could help manufacturers produce recyclable, self-healing commercial batteries, is published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. […]

A Purdue University scientists led a multi-institute team of researchers has developed the most comprehensive view yet of lithium-ion battery electrodes. The electrodes are where most damage typically occurs from charging them repeatedly. The researchers say manufacturers could use this information to design batteries for your smartphone or car that are both more reliable and […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Scientists at Stanford University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Toyota Research Institute have found how to accurately predict the useful lifespan of lithium-ion batteries, used in devices from mobile phones to electric cars. Its an advance that could accelerate battery development and improve manufacturing. If manufacturers of cell-phone batteries could tell which […]
