Argonne maintains a wide-ranging science and technology portfolio that seeks to address complex challenges in interdisciplinary and innovative ways. Below is a list of all articles, highlights, profiles, projects, and organizations related specifically to batteries and fuel cells.
The new coating, called PEDOT, marks a breakthrough in lithium-ion battery technology since it fully and completely protects each particle of the cathode — inside and out — from reactivity with the electrolyte.
Argonne’s ReCell Center has already made pivotal discoveries as scientists create and test new recycling processes and battery designs. These discoveries will help grow a globally competitive U.S. recycling industry.
JCESR has made significant strides with solid-state batteries as successors to today’s Li-ion batteries, including work on speeding up the motion of lithium ions in solid-state batteries using the paddlewheel effect.
