New research eyes cheaper li-ion batteries with double capacity

Gerd Ceder - Battery Research - Materials Sciences Division, Berkeley Lab.

University of California, Berkeley researchers design new energy-dense li-ion cathodes, without the need for cobalt Although lithium is often considered the key element in battery manufacturing, many other components depend on equally important rare earth supplies. With nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) lithium-ion being amongst the most common, each of these materials is …

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 …
