A new lithium-ion battery is designed by researchers at the University of Illinois, 2000 times more powerful than conventional batteries and 1000 times faster.
Researchers at the University of Illinois in Urbana have a new battery technology Lithium-Ion Which is 2000 times more powerful than similar batteries. According to researchers, this is not just an evolutionary step in battery technology, but this new technology can completely change the rules of energy storage past and allow us to do different and new things.
Energy saving is the most important concern of business in all areas. Now you can have a lot of power (watts) or a lot of energy (watts of hours), but we can not have both of them together. Supercars can release huge power for a very short time. Fuel cells can store a lot of energy, but they limit their maximum output power. This is a major problem because most modern applications, such as ever-expanding smartphones, wearable computers, electrical vehicles, etc., require a lot of power and energy. Lithium-ion batteries are currently the best solution for applications requiring high power and energy, but when industrial designers and electronic engineers create a new device, even the best lithium-ion batteries are facing a serious challenge.
An interesting point in the University of Illinois’s battery is that it has a higher power density than superfluid and energy density similar to those of nickel-zinc and lithium-ion batteries. According to the press release of the University Press, a new 30-fold battery capacity can be used on wireless devices to boost 30x or more of the transmission range of signals, and next to it will charge 1000 times faster than conventional lithium-ion batteries. In short, this device is a dream battery.
This enormous breakthrough is due to a new cathode and anodic structure, invented by researchers at the University of Illinois. In essence, a standard lithium battery is typically a two-dimensional solid graphite artifact and a cathode made of lithium salt. On the other hand, the new Illinois battery has anode and cathode porous and three-dimensional. To create this new electrode structure, researchers create a structure of polystyrene (fiberglass) on a glass bed, place nickel electrodeposites on polystyrene, then place nickel-tin electrodes and place cadmium in manganese dioxide. The above illustrations show you how to do it.
As a result, these porous electrodes with their wider surface allow for more chemical reactions in a given space, and ultimately result in a significant increase in power output and charging speed. So far, researchers have used this technology to create a button-sized micro-bubble that can be compared to the conventional Sony CR1620 cell . The power density is slightly lower, but the power density is 2000 times higher.
This technology will probably be used for devices with batteries that are much smaller and lighter. Imagine the smartphone has a battery that is thicker than a credit card, which can be recharged within seconds. In addition, there are plenty of apps out of the space available; for example, in very powerful equipment such as lasers and medical devices, and other devices that typically use supercomputers, such as Formula One and fast charging devices. However, for the fact that the University of Illinois has joined this, it must be proven that their technology will increase the size of the batteries, and the production process will not be expensive for commercial production.
