Lithium Metal Batteries

Lithium Metal Batteries

Penn State researchers recently revealed that possibility of creating rechargeable lithium metal batteries with augmented energy density, performance & safety. They are planning on using a newly created, solid-electrolyte inter-phase to accomplish this. With increasing need for advanced energy density lithium metal batteries which is used for cellphones, drones & electric vehicles. Solid electrolyte inter phase’s stability has been an important issue in stopping their development due to the presence

Lithium Metal Batteries

Researchers from Penn State Universities have discovered new ways to make lithium metal batteries to last longer and charge faster, using a 3D cross-linked polymer sponge. The polymer sponge, when attached to the metal plating of battery anode can improve the safety and life of next generation of lithium metal batteries, according to the researchers. Findings of the project were detailed in a paper and published in the recent issue of
