Silicon anode batteries: the Holy Grail?

Market share depiction

Elon Musk recently announced the use of silicon by Tesla in its automotive batteries: "This is just sort of a baby step in the direction of using silicon in the anode, but we will be increasing the use". This unusual side comment has nonetheless triggered renewed interested in the topic. IDTechEx Research

Tokyo Institute of Technology discovers potential control over superconductivity

Schematic illustration of the pseudo-Li-ion battery structure. The anode and cathode materials are LiTi2O4 film and LiCoO2/Al, respectively. The Li-ion electrochemical reactions and resistivity measurements are independently performed by using electric circuits, drawn by at the side and bottom of the cell, respectively

An applied potential can reversibly induce a superconducting-insulator transition in lithium titanate thin films, report researchers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. “Controlling such exotic properties by applying an external field is one of the biggest continuous challenges in condensed matter physics,”

Flexible sensors: an expanding market

Guillaume Chansin, IDTechEx

Large investments have been made to enable flexible, thin sensors rather than rigid sensors. $75 million was recently awarded by the US Department of Defense to establish a new Manufacturing Innovation Institute (MII) for flexible hybrid electronics in San Jose, California. Under the acronym FHE MII, this new
