    Lithium-sulfur and carbon nanowires could increase battery capacity 4X

    It was more than two years ago that we first heard of a potential battery breakthrough developed by Stanford University professor Yi Cui using carbon nanowires. The bundles of nanowires that comprise the battery anode have more room to swell while absorbing lithium ions without cracking, ...

    Stanford researcher claims lithium ion breakthrough

    Stanford University Materials Science Asst. Prof Yi Cui had developed what is claimed to provide a breakthrough in electrical energy storage. Instead of having an anode comprised of a solid mass of silicon and carbon, Cui and his research team have developed one based on a bundle of silicon ...
