Andrew Rappe’s Work in Improving Lithium Batteries

PICS professor Andrew Rappe and Rappe’s research group, alongside researchers from the Max Planck Institue and the University of Cambridge have recently released a paper that, according to Penn Today, “demonstrated the growth of high-quality, single-crystal layers of T-Nb2O5, aligned in a way that allows lithium ions to move significantly faster.” How quickly lithium ions move correlates to how fast a battery can be charged.
