ALCF and U Chicago Researchers Advance ‘Lithium Air’ Battery Technology

As reported in Nature – “Lithium-Oxygen Batteries with Long Cycle Life in a Realistic Air Atmosphere” – scientists from the University of Illinois at Chicago and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has produced a new design for a beyond-lithium-ion battery cell that operates by running on air (hence, referred to as “lithium-air”) over many charge and discharge cycles.
