Pomegranate Inspired Design Solves Lithium-ion Batteries Problems
2014-02-17 08:46:17

DOE/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory An electrode designed like a pomegranate – with silicon nanoparticles clustered like seeds in a tough carbon rind – overcomes several remaining obstacles to using silicon for a new generation of lithium-ion batteries, say its inventors at Stanford University and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. "While a couple of challenges remain, this design brings us closer to using silicon anodes in smaller, lighter and...

Transmission Electron Microscopy Used To Get An Inside Look At Rechargeable Batteries
2013-12-27 03:53:35

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online By borrowing a page out of life scientists’ book, researchers have found a novel new way to analyze rechargeable batteries – by viewing the electrodes while they are bathed in wet electrolytes. The technique, which mimics the conditions found within actual batteries, is similar to the ways in which life scientists use transmission electron microscopy to study wet environments. Their findings, which were detailed earlier this...

Roots Of The Lithium Battery Problem

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory The lithium-ion batteries that power our laptops, smartphones and electric vehicles could have significantly higher energy density if their graphite anodes were to be replaced by lithium metal anodes. Hampering this change, however, has been the so-called dendrite problem. Over the course of several battery charge/discharge cycles, particularly when the battery is cycled at a fast rate, microscopic fibers of lithium, called “dendrites,” sprout from...

A flyswatter, usually consisting of a small rectangular sheet of flexible material, is a handheld device for smashing flies and other insects. The material is vented, thus reducing wind drag making it move faster in order to hit the target. The beginning flyswatters were just a striking surface attached to the end of a long stick. Dr. Samuel Crumbine was trying to raise awareness of the fly problem in Kansas in 1905 when he coined the term "swat the fly". Frank H. Rose created the "fly...

A mercury arc valve converts high-voltage or high-current alternating current into direct current. It is an electrical rectifier often used to provide power for industrial motors, electric railways, streetcars, and electric locomotives. Peter Cooper Hewitt, in 1902, invented the mercury arc rectifier. It was further developed by researchers throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Prior to solid-state devices, mercury arc rectifiers were one of the more efficient rectifiers. Silicon diode and...
