Brookhaven researchers discover new approach to stabilizing high-nickel cathodes

High-nickel-content cathodes have captured the imagination of scientists, as they could enable much higher energy density. However, the high nickel content causes these cathode materials to degrade more quickly, creating cracks and stability issues as the battery cycles. A team of researchers at the DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory investigated the valence gradient of cathode materials… Read more »

Toyota researchers work with Brookhaven National Lab to investigate magnesium batteries

Toyota researchers are collaborating with the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) at the DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory to probe molecular structures and track chemical reactions in magnesium batteries. “Issues related to cost, power, energy density, and durability of Li-ion batteries have slowed their implementation in large-scale applications, such as electric and hybrid vehicles,” said Toyota… Read more »
