These finding were published today in Nature. The World […]

New class of cobalt-free cathodes could enhance energy density of next-gen lithium-ion batteries — ScienceDaily

Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers have developed a new family of cathodes with the potential to replace the costly cobalt-based cathodes typically found in today’s lithium-ion batteries that power electric vehicles and consumer electronics. The new class called NFA, which stands for nickel-, iron- and aluminum-based cathode, is a derivative of lithium nickelate and can […]
