Engineering Empty Space: Tailoring Battery Electrodes for Ion Transport

Author: Anton Resing: The cathode electrodes in a lithium-ion battery are a composite of solid charge storing particles, a polymeric binder, and a conductive additive. Together, they are well dispersed in a solvent and spread like paint on a conductive substrate, an effective and pleasingly simple solution that works across various chemistries and cell designs. … Read more

Proving new Chemistry

cellerate system

One of the fundamental steps in proving new chemistry is making small cells that can be reliably charged and discharged. These small cells are assembled in argon filled gloveboxes. They are small and very fiddly to assemble. However, they need to be precisely built to reduce variation in data caused from physical mis-alignment of electrodes which … Read more
