Considerations for Producing Nano-sized Materials for Anode and Cathode Coatings in Lithium Ion Batteries - Lithium ion batteries are the power source for most of today’s electronics, but the race is on to enhance these batteries enough so they can be the future of electric vehicles. Researchers and manufacturers are working every day to alter the anode and cathode coatings in order to improve conductivity and increase capacity. The quality of the coating starts early in the grinding and dispersing process. Nano World News spoke with Stephen Miranda of NETZSCH Premier Technologies LLC about what special considerations manufacturers must take when producing nano-sized particles and dispersions for anode and cathode coatings...Read more
