Analysis suggests no short-term supply obstacles for battery materials, although risks persist

By April Gocha / October 20, 2017

According to a new analysis by researchers at MIT, University of California Berkeley, and Rochester Institute of Technology, adequate supply of critical lithium-ion battery materials lithium, cobalt, manganese, graphite, and nickel should not disrupt battery production, at least in the short term.

Ultrathin aluminum oxide layer boosts performance of garnet ceramic solid-state batteries

By April Gocha / January 17, 2017

Researchers at the University of Maryland have designed a way to insert an ultrathin layer of aluminum oxide in between a garnet ceramic electrolyte and electrodes of solid-state batteries, decreasing impedance by 300-fold and allowing the energy to flow.
