Secret to dendrite-free lithium-ion batteries lies in a sugar cube

By Faye Oney / March 13, 2018

Researchers have found a way to reduce dendrite growth in lithium-ion batteries. Creating a 3-D porous substrate out of sugar cubes and silicone, they found that it relieved stress and inhibited dendrite growth.

Defect-free surfaces may be key to preventing formation of lithium dendrites, advancing solid-state batteries

By April Gocha / July 14, 2017

New research from MIT shows that firmness isn’t the most important parameter for developing a solid electrolyte that is effective against dendrite formation—instead, a defect-free surface, which doesn’t provide a place for dendrites to form, is key to a better battery.
