Rechargeable batteries with high energy density, long cycle life critical for energy storage needs of EVs such as Ford C-Max PHEV.
The performance of lithium-ion batteries gets a boost as Stanford University scientists create novel electrodes made of silicon and conducting polymer hydrogel, a spongy material similar to that used in contact lenses and other consumer products. Zhenan Bao, a leading Stanford chemical engineering professor, says the new technique produces low-cost, silicon-based batteries with potential applications for a wide range of electrical devices. The batteries retain a high storage capacity ...
