battery-sulfer-cathode-yolk-1Researchers from the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, which is operated by the Stanford University, managed to set a world record for energy storage in the sulfur cathode of a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. They came up with a novel “yolk-shell” design which enables these batteries to store five times more energy compared to current commercially available… »

rice-silicon-anode-1A group of researchers at Rice University decided to seek a different approach to their previous work in order to develop a high-capacity, durable and low-cost anode material with a great commercial potential for next-generation rechargeable lithium batteries. The newly devised method to use silicon as anode material can nearly triple the capacity of silicon-based… »

kit-battery-researchA multidisciplinary team of researchers from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has been inspired by the way water is transported in trees and they used the same physicochemical effect to develop a faster way to fill the porous electrodes of lithium-ion batteries with liquid electrolyte. Aside lowering the time needed for battery consumption, the… »
