Battery breakthroughs are now happening: University of Michigan development could double performance with lithium metal that doesn't catch fire

A rechargeable battery technology developed at the University of Michigan could double the output of today's lithium-ion cells - -drastically extending electric vehicle ranges and time between cell phone charges - -without taking up any added space.

By using a ceramic, solid-state electrolyte, engineers can harness the power of lithium metal batteries without the historic issues of poor durability and short-circuiting. The result is a roadmap to what could be the next generation of rechargeable batteries.

"This could be a game-changer--a paradigm shift in how a battery operates," said Jeff Sakamoto, a U-M associate professor of mechanical engineering who leads the work.

To solve lithium metal's combustion problem, U-M engineers created a ceramic layer that stabilizes the surface--keeping dendrites from forming and preventing fires. It allows batteries to harness the benefits of lithium metal--energy density and high-conductivity--without the dangers of fires or degradation over time.

"We're talking a factor of 10 increase in charging speed compared to previous reports for solid state lithium metal batteries. We're now on par with lithium-ion cells in terms of charging rates, but with additional benefits. "

The group's findings are published in the Aug. 31 issue of the Journal of Power Sources.

The fruit of silence is prayer.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
The fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
The fruit of service is peace.

Today we celebrate the Patron Saint of Lebanon Charbel Makhlouf, O.L.M. (or Sharbel Maklouf), (Arabic: مار شربل‎, May 8, 1828 – December 24, 1898). He was a Maronite monk and priest from Lebanon. During his life he obtained a wide reputation for holiness and he has been canonized by the Catholic Church. Many Lebanese Christians have prayer cloths blessed and then place them on the sick, praying to God through the intercession of Saint Charbel, for healing.
