US scientists could provide insights into battery materials that allow the rapid charging of electric vehicles after making observations on how ions move in lithium titanate electrode material.

A team led by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory captured, in real time, how lithium ions move in the material (made of lithium, titanium, and oxygen).
