Creating chaos in battery to extend lifetime
The electric car has made its entrance thanks to the advancement of batteries, and we need batteries to store renewable solar and wind energy until the moment when we need the energy. Currently, the most widely used battery for this purpose is the lithium-ion battery. Researchers from TU Delft now present a new breakthrough in Nature Communications and Advanced Materials that could further improve the life of these batteries.
