Improving Quality Control Of Lithium-ion Batteries Using New Technique
2013-05-10 08:10:11

Purdue University Researchers have created a new tool to detect flaws in lithium-ion batteries as they are being manufactured, a step toward reducing defects and inconsistencies in the thickness of electrodes that affect battery life and reliability. The electrodes, called anodes and cathodes, are the building blocks of powerful battery arrays like those used in electric and hybrid vehicles. They are copper on one side and coated with a black compound to store lithium on the other....

Flow Battery Stores Wind And Solar Energy

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers reported in the journal Energy & Environmental Science they have designed a low-cost, long-life battery that could be used in solar and wind energy. Electrical grids are unable to tolerate large and sudden power fluctuations caused by intermittent sunlight and wind. The team saw the need for energy storage systems to help smooth out the peaks and valleys of this intermittent power. Researchers from the US...
