STUDY IDENTIFIES MAIN CULPRIT BEHIND LITHIUM METAL BATTERY FAILURE

A research team led by the University of California San Diego has discovered the root cause of why lithium metal batteries fail—bits of lithium metal deposits break off from the surface of the anode during discharging and are trapped as “dead” or inactive lithium that the battery can no longer access.
