Lithium-ion batteries: Capacity might be increased by 6 times

The capacity of lithium-ion batteries might be increased by six times by using anodes made of silicon instead of graphite. Scientists have observed for the first time in detail how lithium ions migrate into thin films of silicon. It was shown that extremely thin layers of silicon would be sufficient to achieve the maximal load of lithium.

Buckyball buffer helps conduct electricity in only one direction

The inherently weak interactions between C60 and pentacene and the strong coupling of C60 with copper lead to a system reminiscent of a 2-molecule-thick Schottky diode, with a current rectification comparable with the best performers in the field of molecular diodes.
