­Cheap Battery has Four Times the Capacity of Lithium-Ion

The sodium-sulphur battery has four times the energy capacity of lithium-ion batteries.

  There has been a lot of research done on molten-salt batteries in recent times. The technology has a very high energy density and can often be cheaper to produce than other technologies. They are also less toxic than the Li-ion batteries that we often use now for energy storage. The low cost aspect

Researchers Zoom in on Battery Wear and Tear

PME researchers collected data on how different components of a thick lithium ion battery electrode evolve after successive cycles (one snapshot of the microscopy data shown on the left). Then, they used this data to create a computational model (right) illustrating the degradation....

­From the moment you first use it, a new lithium-ion battery is degrading. After a few hundred charge cycles, you’ll notice — your phone, laptop or electric car battery wears out more quickly. Eventually, it stops holding a charge at all.  Researchers at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of

Designing Better Battery Electrolytes

Shirley Meng, chief scientist at the Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science

­Looking at the future of battery materials. Designing a battery is a three-part process. You need a positive electrode, you need a negative electrode, and — importantly — you need an electrolyte that works with both electrodes. An electrolyte is the battery component that transfers ions — charge-

Long-Life Electrode Material for Solid-State Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries in today's electric vehicles don’t deliver the necessary performance and durability at a reasonable price.

  Solid-state batteries (SSBs) look as if they will win the battle to become the technology that replaces the lithium-ion batteries we currently use, especially in applications such as electric vehicles. They have all the positive attributes of Li-ion batteries, but their solid electrolyte is safer and
