A paper-like battery electrode developed by a Kansas State University engineer may improve tools for space exploration or unmanned aerial vehicles. Gurpreet Singh, associate professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering, and his research team have created the battery electrode using silicon oxycarbide-glass and graphene.
A newly developed glass-polymer hybrid electrolyte addresses challenges in solid-state lithium batteries.
February 1, 2016
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a novel electrolyte for use in solid-state lithium batteries that overcomes many of the problems that plague other solid electrolytes while also showing signs of being compatible with next-generation cathodes.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Clean Energy Manufacturing Analysis Center (CEMAC) recently announced the release of “Automotive Lithium-ion Battery Supply Chain and U.S. Competitiveness Considerations.”
