Sony is pushing forward with lithium-sulfur battery
recently developed a carbonaceous foam as a lithium-sulfur battery
electrode, with macroporosity as well as mesoporosity.
Oxis, with $24 million in funding from South Africa's Sasol, is developing a lithium-sulfur battery
, while Faradion is investigating sodium-ion technology.
JCESR has already achieved performance from a lithium-sulfur battery
cathode that is better than what is commercially available, and a growing number of organizations continue to join JCESRs affiliate program to help accelerate development of advanced battery technologies.
One promising solution is the lithium-sulfur battery
, which can hold as much as four times more energy per mass than lithium-ion batteries.
Whereas previous research reports have celebrated the ability to recharge a lithium-sulfur battery
150 times, the Stanford researchers recharged their battery 1,000 times and still retained 67 percent of its energy storage capacity.
