Tokyo University of Science scientists have discovered a stable, highly conductive lithium-ion conductor in the form of a pyrochlore-type oxyfluoride. It’s an innovation addressing the need for non-sulfide solid electrolytes. All-solid-state lithium-ion batteries offer enhanced safety and energy density compared to liquid electrolyte counterparts, but face challenges like lower conductivity and insufficient electrode contact. The […]

Researchers at Kyushu University, in collaboration with Osaka University and the Fine Ceramics Center, have developed a framework that uses machine learning to speed up the discovery of materials for green energy technology. Using the new approach, the researchers identified and successfully synthesized two new candidate materials for use in solid oxide fuel cells – […]

Its a breakthrough that means the advantages of hydrogen-based solid-state batteries and fuel cells are within practical reach, including improved safety, efficiency, and energy density, which are […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Argonne National Laboratory researchers have discovered a material that is only four atoms thick and allows for the study of the motion of charged particles in only two dimensions. Those kinds of studies could lead to pivotal discoveries in solid electrolytes for batteries and other applications. It was an unplanned discovery that could lead […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology research could lead to batteries that can pack more power per pound and last longer. The research is focused on the long-sought goal of using pure lithium metal as one of the battery’s two electrodes, the anode. The new electrode concept comes from the laboratory of Ju Li, the Battelle Energy […]
