Important Innovations Collection: Innovation Rewarded

Nobel Prize for Chemistry - Lithium Ion Batteries Source:  Nobel Prize 3 Discoverers of Innovation, Creating a Rechargeable World The innovation discovery process spans two decades, the 1970's and 1980's and two worlds:  the US and Japan.  The end result of the cumulative achievements in developing the lithium-ion battery is a breathtaking Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2 US scientists and a Japanese scientist.  What they have invented, the lithium-ion battery, has been termed by the Nobel Prize Committee as an invention that "recharges the world".  Their discovery enables our global communications over laptops and cellphones and the possibilities of renewable energy by catching and storing vast amounts of wind and solar power on their battery systems.  The inventors' battery even enables us to drive electric cars.  Congratulations to the visionary discoverers!  For more news on this, go to Important Innovations Collection: Innovation Rewarded : Nobel Prize i

Revolutionary Lithium Air Batteries Real Now

Scientists Say They've Cracked the Code University of Illinois at Chicago scientists say they've cracked the code to make lithium air batteries a real option.  That includes powering popular devices like cellphones and laptops.  Its next G beyond lithium-ion batteries.  For battery experts, creation of lithium air batteries has been a tantalizing tech goal for many years. "Revolutionary" Tech - 5 Times More Energy The new batteries hold up to 5 times more energy than the lithium ion batteries that power our phones, electronics and electric vehicles. It works in a natural air environment bringing it very close to everyday use.  University of Illinois Asst. Professor Amin Salehi-Khojin, who leads the team, called it " a revolution in the battery community that's going to take the industry beyond lithium-ion batteries."  The team is now working on commercializing it. Tech Works The new battery works by combining lithium on the anode with oxygen fr
