Danger Zone of Lithium-Battery Defects Identified

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

battery-life-blogBattery researchers have engaged in a lot of work recently to study the formation of lithium dendrites, or needle-like structures and whiskers that form within the battery and cause them to degrade, which can result in fire or an explosion.

New research toward this end comes from a team at Michigan Technological University, where researchers studied tiny defects at the micro scale that form between a lithium anode and a solid electrolyte to find clues to the formation of dendrites.
