Lithium will be a thing of the past.
An international team of scientists from the Helmholtz Center Dresden-Rossendorf, IBCP RAS and NUST MISIS have discovered an affordable alternative to lithium for use in storage batteries. Experts have found that using a special method of stacking atoms in several layers, it is possible to achieve high energy intensity in the case of various alkali metals. The most accessible and likely for mass use was named sodium, which can become a full-fledged replacement for lithium in batteries in the coming years.
According to scientists, for a long time it was believed that the packing of lithium atoms in batteries can only be done in one layer. Otherwise, the structure of the battery was recognized as unstable. However, experiments have shown that using modern methods of atomic packing, it is possible to create multilayer structures that are stable. Including using sodium and other alkali metals.
Scientists from the Helmholtz Center Dresden-Rossendorf will create an experimental model of a sodium battery. If the tests are successful, the new type of batteries will go into mass production. According to experts, such batteries will be much cheaper to manufacture, but at the same time have an increased capacity compared to lithium-ion batteries.
Earlier it became known that OPPO is preparing to release the first smartphone with a record fast charging with a capacity of 125 watts.
