Sodium (Na)-ion batteries are rapidly gaining attention as the next-generation solution to replace lithium-ion batteries due to their lower production cost and similar battery systems. In a significant breakthrough, Professor Hyun-Wook Lee... Read More
Eutectic Salt-assisted Planetary Centrifugal Deagglomeration for Single-crystalline Cathode Synthesis
Their findings have been published in the April 2023 issue of Nature Energy.
Abstract Single-crystalline layered cathodes are often desirable for advanced lithium-ion batteries. However, constrained by the accessible temperature range to prevent lithium evaporation, lattice defects and particle agglomerations, the p... Read More
Unveiling the Role of Electrode-level Heterogeneity Alleviated in Si-graphite Electrode Under Operando Microscopy
Their findings have been published in the February 2023 issue of Energy Storage Materials.
Abstract Reaction heterogeneity is a crucial factor that influences the design of composite electrodes. Silicon–graphite composites exhibit practical use as anodes, but the complex mechanisms in blended electrodes have not been investigated... Read More
