Lithium-sulfur batteries last longer with nanomaterial-packed cathode Electric vehicles could travel farther and more renewable energy could be stored with lithium-sulfur batteries that use a unique powdery nanomaterial. Researchers added the powder, a kind of nanomaterial called a metal organic framework, to the battery's cathode to capture problematic polysulfides that usually cause lithium-sulfur batteries to fail after a few charges. A paper describing the material and its...

DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory New anode quadruples life of lithium-sulfur battery, could also help store renewable energy more cheaply It's known that electric vehicles could travel longer distances before needing to charge and more renewable energy could be saved for a rainy day if lithium-sulfur batteries can just overcome a few technical hurdles. Now, a novel design for a critical part of the battery has been shown to significantly extend the technology's lifespan,...

Lithium Sulfur Batter Next Big Thing
2013-11-20 14:21:16

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new lithium-sulfur battery may now take the crown as the highest performing battery, lasting more than twice as long as lithium-ion batteries. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have shown that lithium-sulfur (Li/S) batteries contain more than twice the energy of lithium-ion, and can last for more than 1,500 charge-discharge cycles. This battery may help to change the...

American Institute of Physics The ever-increasing market for portable electronic devices such as laptops, cell phones and MP3 players has resulted in an equally heavy demand for secondary batteries -- more commonly known as rechargeable batteries -- Lithium-ion (Li-ion) being among the most popular. Scientists and engineers worldwide are seeking ways to improve the power density, durability and overall performance of Lithium-ion batteries, and in a recent paper in the AIP Publishing...

Sulfur-Based Battery Has Four Times The Energy Of Lithium-Ion
2013-06-06 10:39:24

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Engineers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have announced the successful testing of an all-solid lithium-sulfur battery with about four times the energy density of today´s lithium-ion batteries. Energy density is defined as the amount of energy stored in a system per unit of volume. "Our approach is a complete change from the current battery concept of two electrodes joined by a liquid electrolyte, which has been used...

X-ray Imaging To Observe Running Batteries In Action
2012-07-18 09:56:44

Most electric cars, from the Tesla Model S to the Nissan Leaf, run on rechargeable lithium-ion batteries — a pricey technology that accounts for more than half of the vehicle's total cost. One promising alternative is the lithium-sulfur battery, which can theoretically store five times more energy at a much lower cost. But lithium-sulfur technology has a major drawback: After a few dozen cycles of charging and discharging, the battery stops working. "The cycle life of...


Word of the Day
call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
