What Happens Inside a Battery?

Mother Nature Network:

Have you ever wondered what happens inside a battery? You're not alone; scientists are still searching for new clues to the processes that take place inside batteries as part of the ongoing quest to create better, more powerful, longer-lasting and cheaper energy-storage solutions.

A team of researchers with the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and other institutions have just unlocked some of the secrets hidden within rechargeable batteries. The work, published last month in the journal Nano Letters, could eventually lead to better rechargeable batteries, something that would help to further enable electric vehicles and alternative energies such as wind and solar.
