Through thick and thin: Neutrons track lithium ions in battery electrodes 2

Lithium-ion batteries are expected to have a global market value of $47 billion by 2023, but their use in heavy-duty applications such as electric vehicles is limited due to factors such as lengthy charge and discharge cycles. Engineers are examining how the lithium moves in battery electrodes, important in designing batteries that charge and discharge faster. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/04/190419094050.htm
