Nobel Prize Winning Technique Discovers Reason Behind Battery Fires


Forbes has the article Nobel Prize Winning Technique Discovers Reason Behind Battery Fires.

A technique known as cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) won the 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry and has been used by scientists at Stanford University to capture the first atomic-level images of growths in batteries, which have been one of the largest limitations to developing better batteries.

This research could lead to the type of breakthrough that is predicted to lead to electric vehicles surpassing gasoline powered vehicles in range and refueling times.
