'Popcorn' particle pathways promise better lithium-ion batteries

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists led by a team at Stanford University have developed a new silicon-based electrode for lithium-ion batteries that could significantly improve the performance of the popular batteries, according to a new report in Nature Communications. In a lithium-ion battery, the electrode connects the lithium electrolyte, which is primarily responsible for power generation, with the rest of a circuit. "Developing rechargeable lithium-ion batteries with high energy density and long cycle life is of critical importance to address the ever-increasing energy storage needs for portable electronics, electric vehicles and other technologies," said study co-author Zhenan Bao, a professor of chemical engineering at Stanford University. "We've been trying to develop silicon-based electrodes for high-capacity lithium-ion batteries for several years," added co-author Yi Cui, an associate professor of materials science and engineering at Stanford. "Silicon has 10 times t
