Lithium-Air batteries hold great promise, as they can store four times more energy that conventional cells. Unfortunately, as of now, they don't recharge well and researchers are having a hard time figuring out exactly why. Enter MIT, who has Top Men working on this, using high intensity X-ray illumination to study the reactions at the surface of the electrodes to understand what is actually happening. This work is being done in collaboration with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley national laboratory.
