carbon for a battery anode

Researchers at Stanford University have created a carbon-coated lithium anode, which has performed 150 charge/discharge cycles without forming dendritic spines at 99% Columbic efficiency.

The team placed layers of amorphous carbon to form a protective coat around the lithium anode, thus allowing it to expand and contract without causing dendritic growth at the electrolyte-electrode interface, claimed the Stanford team in a research paper published in Nature Nanotechnology.
