The energy race: Increasing energy density in lithium-air batteries

By Eileen De Guire / July 28, 2011

Depiction of the essential functioning of the lithium-air battery. Ions of Li combine with oxygen from the air to form particles of Li oxides, which attach themselves to carbon fibers on the electrode as the battery is being used. During recharging, the Li oxides separate again into Li and oxygen and the process can begin…

Carbon nanotubes to make Li-ion batteries 10 times more powerful

By / June 24, 2010

According to an MIT press release, researchers claim to have created electrodes from carbon nanotubes that can make lithium-ion batteries ten times more powerful than conventional models. Such batteries, they say, could one day be used for power-hungry applications, such as hybrid vehicles and renewable energy sources. Yang Shao-Horn and colleagues have created electrodes made…
