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...
