The coating significantly extends the battery's life and reduces the problems that cause batteries to burst into flames.
This early-career scientist has undertaken challenging projects with significant implications for lithium-ion batteries.
What they learned could help manufacturers design more reliable and longer-lasting batteries for smartphones and cars.
A laser technique lets researchers see how potentially dangerous growths form in batteries.
In the decade since LCLS produced its first light, it has pushed boundaries in countless areas of discovery.
Combination of research methods reveals causes of capacity fading, giving scientists better insight to design advanced batteries for electric vehicles
New research offers the first complete picture of why a promising approach of stuffing more lithium into battery cathodes leads to their failure. A better understanding of this phenomenon could be the key to smaller phone batteries and electric cars that drive farther between charges.
Representatives from industry, national laboratories and the investment sector explored partnerships in energy storage innovation.
Experiments at SLAC and Berkeley Lab uproot long-held assumptions and will inform future battery design.
Using SLAC’s X-ray synchrotron SSRL, Cao improves fundamental knowledge about how a new lithium-ion battery material works, which will help enable safer, longer-lasting devices.
