The advance, detailed in a new paper published Aug. 25 in the journal Nature, could accelerat ... more
First closeups of how a lithium-metal electrode ages
The same process that drains the battery of your cell phone even when it's turned off is even more of a problem for lithium-metal batteries, which are being developed for the next generation of smaller, lighter electronic devices, far-ranging electric vehicles and other uses.
