New `pomegranate-inspired` design could revolutionise battery storage

Washington, Feb. 17 (ANI): Researchers have created an electrode designed like a pomegranate- with silicon nanoparticles clustered like seeds in a tough carbon rind- that overcomes several remaining obstacles to using silicon for a new generation of lithium-ion batteries.

“While a couple of challenges remain, this design brings us closer to using silicon anodes in smaller, lighter and more powerful batteries for products like cell phones, tablets and electric cars,” lead researcher Yi Cui , an associate professor at Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, said.

The inventor said that experiments showed their pomegranate-inspired anode operates at 97 percent capacity even after 1,000 cycles of charging and discharging, which puts it well within the desired range for commercial operation.
