Porous Silicon Particle Anode "Triples Capacity" of Lithium-Ion Battery, University of Southern California Study


2/15/2013 7:59:28 AM

Researchers at the University of Southern California (USC) have developed a new lithium-ion battery design that uses porous silicon nanoparticles in place of the traditional graphite anodes. The new batteries - which could be used in anything from cell phones to hybrid cars - are claimed to hold three times as much energy as comparable graphite-based designs and recharge within 10 minutes. The design, currently under a provisional patent, could be commercially available within two to three years.
