World´s tinest battery
It not thinner than a human hair, but it has twice the charging capacity of the lithum-ion batteris that are on the market today. Scientists at Sandia National Labs in Albuquerque has managed to create a battery of nanowires
These observations prove that nanowires can sustain large stress induced by lithiation without breaking, indicating that nanowires are very good candidates for battery electrodes
Says Jianyu Huang leader of the researchteam in a press release.
