Data-driven modeling and estimation of lithium-ion battery properties

Data-driven modeling and estimation of lithium-ion battery properties

Electric vehicles are powered by lithium-ion batteries, a rechargeable battery that's still not fully understood or perfected. And inasmuch as electric cars are expected to replace gas-powered cars, any research that improves the performance of a lithium-ion battery will be a boon for electric vehicles and the environment.

Lithium to lithium, manganese to manganese

Lithium to lithium, manganese to manganese

In the future, Volkswagen will offer e-mobility for all - and will assume overall responsibility: from the concepts for the vehicles, through production, sales and operations on to recycling. For this reason, a pilot plant for battery recycling is currently being set up at Salzgitter factory, south-west of Braunschweig, Germany.

Cutting the cost of fuel cells in electric vehicles

Cutting the cost of fuel cells in electric vehicles

The 2019 Toyota Mirai electric vehicle touts zero emissions, thanks to a fuel cell that runs on hydrogen instead of gasoline. But the Mirai has barely left California, partly because today's fuel cell electrodes are made of super expensive platinum.

New material to increase phone battery life by over 300%

New material to increase phone battery life by over 300%

Researchers have today announced the development of a new material which has the potential to improve the lifetime of the battery in every day electronics, such as smartphones. The new material also has the potential to significantly improve issues of battery lifetime while also ensuring that batteries can continue to become smaller without loss of performance.

Structural super capacitors prepare for take off

Structural super capacitors prepare for take off

As their name suggests, such multifunctional structural materials simultaneously carry out two or more functions that would normally have to be addressed separately. For example, a structural role might combine with optical, electrical, magnetic or thermal properties. In some cases, entire complex devices can be built either within or from the primary structural material.
