A new lithium-based electrolyte invented by Stanford University scientists could pave the way for the next generation of battery-powered electric vehicles.

In a study published June 22 in Nature Energy, Stanford researchers demonstrate how their novel electrolyte design boosts the performance of lithium metal batteries, a promising technology for powering electric vehicles, laptops and other devices.

Study co-authors include David Mackanic, a 2015 Stanford Graduate Fellow, and Samantha Hung, a 2017 EDGE-STEM Fellow.
