Why lithium ion batteries fail

Why lithium ion batteries fail | Science technology and reaserch | Scoop.it
Materials in lithium ion battery electrodes expand and contract during charge and discharge. These volume changes drive particle fracture, which shortens battery lifetime.

lloyd stanley gordon's curator insight, September 30, 2013 6:19 PM

This  is  all  quite  extraordinary  and  beyond  the  science of  my  development in Physics at  London University College. It was  not  even hinted at. However, I once  had a  dream in  the little  town of  Ocho Riuos, Jamaica,  that  light could  somehow develop  a  cherence  suggesting  a  flow of molecules  like  unto  water. I  called  it  "The Fields  of  Light  Where  Luminescence Congeals." And  so  it  is  indeed  possible.  My  dream  alone  seems  to have  preceeded this  one. I  wonder  what the  apps  might  be  for  Chronic R-S  sufferers?
