Researchers smooth out lithium’s dendrite problem

This image shows the temperature driven merging and fusing of lithium dendrites into a uniform (smooth) surface, which eliminates the risk of electrical shorting in lithium-ion batteries.

Researchers at the US’ Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have made a breakthrough in battery technology, using heat to smooth out dendrite deposits A new technique developed by a team at Rensslaer Polytechnic uses heat to enable lithium-metal to self-heal, eliminating the buildup of dendrites in battery anodes. Dendrites are a major limiting factor …
