Lithium Technology: 'Holy Grail' Battery Scientist Explains Incredible Breakthrough.

  

Forbes: Yi Cui Research Team at Stanford University.

  We are moving fast into the electric age for our transportation systems and lithium technology "breakthrough" news comes out almost every week now. All these claims will have to make it to the real auto market first for us to be really excited, but one thing is apparent already: billions of dollars spent in R&D and the best minds world-wide are making mass market for electric cars reality in a few short years from now.

Gordon Kelly.
Yi Cui might just change the world. Last month theStanford University professor of material science and his 50 strong team of researchers published a paper on the biggest battery breakthrough in decades – a self proclaimed ‘Holy Grail’. Now I speak to Cui to discover the real world practicalities behind what is potentially one of the most exciting scientific breakthroughs of recent times.
“It’s all about stabilizing lithium,” explains Cui, with understandable excitement in his voice. “When today’s Lithium Ion batteries are adapted to use lithium which remains stable in both the anode and electrolyte everything changes. The world can change.” Read more on Forbes."
