The evidence is plain: Today's lithium‑ion isn't quite good enough for all the applications that other industries, such as automotive, require. Rick Howard takes a look at what's coming down the pipe.
The enthusiastic creative thinking of a child diminishes with age, but technology advances prove that this gift is not lost on scientists stretching the boundaries of (electro)-chemistry and other disciplines. My granddaughter's excitement is paralleled by the deep satisfaction found in laboratories with the development of new, more robust materials and systems for Li-ion batteries. While industry expertise . . .
