Scientists reveal lithium-ion secrets

Physicists at the US Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory and collaborating institutions have developed methods of examining lithium-ion reactions in real-time to a nanoscale (billionths-of-a-metre) precision, offering unprecedented insights into processes that are vital to battery technology, reports NanoWerk.

“(L)ive, nanoscale imaging may help pave the way for developing longer-lasting, higher-capacity lithium-ion batteries. That means better consumer electronics and the potential for large-scale, emission-free energy storage,” commented Feng Wang, one of the key researchers on the project.
