Nokia Bell Labs, Amber Extend Lithium-Ion Battery Life

Increasing the energy storage capability of lithium-ion batteries necessitates maximisation of their areal capacity. This requires thick electrodes performing at near-theoretical specific capacity. However, achievable electrode thicknesses are restricted by mechanical instabilities, with high-thickness performance limited by the attainable electrode conductivity. The researchers showed  that forming a segregated network composite of carbon nanotubes
