Eliminating the bottlenecks for use of lithium-sulfur batteries using small-angle scattering


Energy storage in lithium-sulfur batteries is potentially higher than in lithium-ion batteries but they are hampered by a short life. A new paper in Chem, published 22 March, has now identified the main bottlenecks in performance using small-angle scattering. 

The study combined various radiation scattering techniques. X-ray analyses were made in Uppsala, Sweden, and neutron results came from the Institut Laue Langevin, in Grenoble, France.
