Predicting the slow death of lithium-ion batteries

In electric cars, the new technology could improve driving range estimates and prolong battery life


Batteries fade as they age, slowly losing power and storage capacity. As in people, aging plays out differently from one battery to another, and it's next to impossible to measure or model all of the interacting mechanisms that contribute to decline. As a result, most of the systems used to ...

No more playing with fire: Study offers insight into 'safer' rechargeable batteries

Scientists use a new technique to reveal how dendrites form in rechargeable batteries


Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are a common type of rechargeable batteries. Their versatile nature and numerous applications in all sorts of electronic devices--from mobile phones to cars--makes them seem too good to be true. And perhaps they are: recently, there has been an increase in the number ...

Fluorine recycling for lithium-ion batteries

Water-based lithium-ion batteries would be safer to handle and easier to recycle


Lithium-ion batteries contain salts rich in fluorine, which decompose in humid air to toxic, highly corrosive hydrogen fluoride. The hazardous nature of this substance makes recycling more difficult and more expensive. A research project entitled "Fluoribat" is now being launched at Empa to solve ...

New lithium battery charges faster, reduces risk of device explosions

Researchers at Texas A&M University have invented a technology that can prevent lithium batteries from heating and failing


Cell phone batteries often heat up and, at times, can burst into flames. In most cases, the culprit behind such incidents can be traced back to lithium batteries. Despite providing long-lasting electric currents that can keep devices powered up, lithium batteries can internally short circuit, ...


image description
New room-temperature liquid-metal battery could be the path to powering the future

A mixture of liquid and solid state batteries


Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have built a new type of battery that combines the many benefits of existing options while eliminating their key shortcomings and saving energy. Most batteries are composed of either solid-state electrodes, ...
