Scientists one step closer to producing more efficient lithium-ion batteries

MINEX Forum | May 29, 2018
img0 Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory discovered a first-of-its-kind copper and graphite combination that, they say, could have implications for improving the energy efficiency of lithium-ion batteries. The discovery took place after they bombarded graphite in an ultra-high vacuum environment with ions to create surface defects. Copper was then deposited on the ...
