Tracking 3D nanoscale changes in rechargeable battery material during operation

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have made the first 3D observations of how the structure of a lithium-ion battery anode evolves at the nanoscale in a real battery cell as it discharges and recharges.

Scientists develop paintable batteries

Scientists at Rice University have managed to design a lithium-ion battery that can be painted on virtually any surface.
