    Cambridge researchers turn to nanotechnology to improve energy storage(08/06/2011)

    A new collaborative project between industry and researchers at the University of Cambridge could lead to vast improvements in the capacity and safety of lithium-ion batteries, which are already widely used in consumer electronics and are expected to power next-generation electric vehicles and large energy storage devices in the near future. The project will build upon the research of Professor Derek Fray and Dr Carsten Schwandt of the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy.
