NSCU have aligned silicon-coated carbon nanotubes like a layer of drinking straws.

Battery design gets nanotube boost

Researchers at North Carolina State University have created a new flexible nano-scaffold for rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries that could help make cell phone and electric car batteries last longer. The research, published online in Advanced Materials, shows…

Nanoflowers let Li-ion batteries bloom

North Carolina State University researchers have created flower-like structures out of germanium sulfide (a semiconductor material) that have extremely thin petals with an enormous surface area, which could dramatically boost the capacity of lithium-ion (Li-ion)…
