Functional Battery Made With Virus/Nanotube Electrodes

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

By John Trimmer
In the latest bit of battery tech to come out of MIT, researchers have modified a virus so that it connects charges stored in standard lithium battery materials with a carbon nanotube electrode.
Researchers have developed a specific formulation of lithium-iron phosphate that allows lithium charges to rapidly move in and out of the [...]

Nanotube Technology Improves Rechargeable Lithium Batteries

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

Researchers at the Shenyang National Laboratory for Materials Science, in China, have shown that nanotechnology can boost the life of rechargeable lithium battieries, by finding that a carbon nanotube anode coating can prevent such batteries from losing their charge capacity over time.
The research team has been examining how to improve the kind of rechargeable batteries [...]

Carbon Nanotube Lengthens Battery Life

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

Carbon nanotubes tiny tubular structures composed of a single layer of carbon atoms lengthens the life of batteries, according to new research. Findings suggest that the diminutive tubes can hold twice the energy as graphite, the form of carbon currently used as an electrode in many rechargeable lithium batteries.
The reduction and oxidation reactions that [...]

Carbon Nanotube Battery Developed

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Companies have been trying to figure out how to use carbon nanotubes in electronics. Batteries may be the answer, say researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The device is a piece of paper infused with carbon nanotubes and a salt, which serves as an electrolyte. Because it stores energy and conducts it, the device can act [...]

Carbon nanotubes for lithium ion batteries

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

Lithium ion batteries have received considerable attention in applications, ranging from portable electronics to electric vehicles, due to their superior energy density over other rechargeable battery technologies. However, the societal demands for lighter, thinner, and higher capacity lithium ion batteries necessitate ongoing research for novel materials with improved properties over that of state-of-the-art. Such an [...]

Need for Nanotube Battery

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Need: There is a need for a new battery with low internal impedance and high capacity, as well as one that discharges over a long period of time relative to conventional batteries. The nanotube battery, according to this case, is such a battery, and may be applied to batteries as structures, sensors, sensor networks, remote [...]
