Battery with a twist – Science Daily
…….Markus Niederberger, Professor for Multifunctional Materials at ETH Zurich, and his team (have created a new prototype battery). The researchers have developed a prototype for a flexible thin-film battery that can be bent, stretched and even twisted without interrupting the supply of power.
What makes this new battery special is its electrolyte — that part of the battery through which lithium-ions move when the battery is charged or discharged. This electrolyte was discovered by ETH doctoral student Xi Chen, lead author of the study that recently appeared in the scientific journal Advanced Materials.… Source
