Electroplated batteries store more energy
Electroplated battery electrodes can store 30% more energy than today’s best commercial models, according to a new study. The electroplating process is compatible with a range of high-performance cathode materials called lithium transition-metal oxides. And it could help make flexible batteries needed for wearable electronics.
Making electrodes from these oxide materials normally requires high temperatures, which is a constraint on battery designs and performance, says Paul Braun, a materials scientist at the . . .
