Lithium Ion Batteries

Scientists have developed a material to improve performance of lithium-ion batteries. It stimulates speed that makes them even more important for consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and solar grid storage. The Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) conducted the research to improve charging speed and performance. The researchers discovered that changing cobalt oxide (CoO) to vanadium disulfide (VS₂) in the cathode might help. A professor at RPI, Nikhil Koratkar said that the material

New Anode Mixture to Boost Performance and Life of Lithium-ion Batteries

Researchers at the UK’s University of Warwick have reinforced anode structure with graphene girders by developing an effective approach for replacing graphite in anodes by using silicone, as a result of which the capacity of lithium ion batteries is boosted significantly as well as double the lifespan of the same. By adding graphene girders, researchers have effectively handled and addressed performance issues of silicon and efficiently stepped up the capacity
