Read More: What’s Causing the Voltage Fade in Lithium-rich NMC Cathode Materials? https://ucsdnews.ucsd.edu/pressreleas... “After a battery goes through a series of charge-discharge cycles, its voltage fades and the amount of energy it can hold, and release later for use, also fades. The new research explains why this happens in Lithium-rich NMC cathode materials. In particular, the researchers identified nanoscale defects or dislocations in Lithium-rich NMC cathode materials as the batteries charged at a range of voltages going up to 4.7 volts.”
GM’s New Battery Chemistry? It’s Already In the Chevy Volt https://www.popsci.com/cars/article/2... “A battery contains two electrodes: the cathode (positive) and the anode (negative). Most of the lithium-ion batteries available today use an anode made of carbon. There are a variety of cathode chemistries, however. The bulk of the research dedicated to improving lithium-ion batteries over the past two decades has focused on the cathode: on finding new materials and tweaking them atom by atom to make a better battery..”
