Scientists reveals nanoscale secrets of lithium-ion

Scientists may have discovered how to design better battery and management systems after observing how lithium-ions move at the nanoscale.

The team used X-rays and cutting-edge microscopes at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Advanced Light Source to look at the particles as they were charged and discharged.
