Purdue University’s research shows promise for developing high-energy-density rechargeable lithium-metal batteries and addressing the electrochemical oxidation instability of ether-based electrolytes. The research was conducted by Purdue University’s Vilas Pol Energy Research (ViPER) Group. The research report has been published in Nature Communications, a peer-reviewed, open access, scientific journal published by Nature Portfolio. Zheng Li, a […]

A Pohang University of Science & Technology research team succeeded in developing an anode-free lithium battery. The design maximized energy density and improved energy density by 40%. The Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH) research team led by Professor Soojin Park and PhD candidate Sungjin Cho (Department of Chemistry) in collaboration with Professor Dong-Hwa […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The Rice University lab of chemist James Tour introduced a technique to tune the surface of anodes for batteries by simply brushing powders into them. The powder adheres to the anode and becomes a thin, lithiated coating that effectively prevents the formation of damaging dendrites. A powder of phosphorus and sulfur ground into the […]

A team of University of California – San Diego materials scientists and chemists has determined the proper stack pressure that lithium metal batteries, or LMBs, need to be subjected to during battery operation in order to produce optimal performance. Keep in mind that Lithium Metal and Lithium Ion batteries are quite different. The team, which […]

University of Michigan researchers are asking key questions about the promising power storage in a Lithium Metal battery that need to be answered before it can make the jump from the laboratory to manufacturing facilities. The next generation of electric vehicle batteries, with greater range and improved safety, could be emerging in the form solid-state […]
