Scientists work to develop ceramic conductors for Li-ion batteries

By Jim Destefani / July 31, 2013

Making the lithium-ion batteries that power everything from hybrid and all-electric vehicles to cell phones and other mobile electronic devices safer, longer lasting, and less expensive is a key goal for researchers in the field. Conventional Li-ion batteries use a liquid conducting medium to allow current to flow between the battery’s anode and cathode. Scientists…
