New Paper-like Nanomaterial Could Boost Electric Car Batteries in Electric Car News , Technology / by Editorial Staff / on February 22, 2015 at 2:33 am / Researchers at the University of California, Riverside’s Bourns College of Engineering have developed a novel paper-like material for lithium-ion batteries. It has the potential to boost by several times the specific energy, or amount of energy that can be delivered per unit weight of the battery. This paper-like material is composed of sponge-like silicon nanofibers more than 100 times thinner than human hair. It could be used in batteries for electric vehicles and personal electronics. The findings were just published in a paper in the journal Nature Scientific Reports (“Towards Scalable Binderless Electrodes: Carbon Coated Silicon Nanofiber Paper via Mg Reduction of Electrospun SiO2 Nanofibers” ). The authors were Mihr...
