Scientist’s New Approach May Accelerate Design of High-power Batteries: Research led

Research led by a Stanford scientist promises to increase the performance of high-power electrical storage devices, such as car batteries. In work published last week in Applied Physics Letters , the researchers describe a mathematical model for designing new materials for storing electricity. The model could be a huge benefit to chemists and materials scientists, who traditionally rely on trial and error to create new materials for batteries and capacitors. Advancing new materials for energy storage is an important step toward reducing carbon emissions in the transportation and electricity sectors. “The potential here is that you could build batteries that last much longer and make them much smaller,” said study co-author Daniel Tartakovsky, a professor in the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences. “If you could engineer a material with a far superior storage c...
