Building better batteries
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in France describes research that may ultimately lead to the development of faster-charging batteries.
The international team of researchers investigated what happens during battery failure, focusing on the different parts of a battery at the same time.
“Before the experiments we didn’t know we could study these many particles at once. Imaging individual active battery particles has been the focus of this field. To make a better battery, you need to maximize the contribution from each individual particle,” said study co-author Yijin Liu.
