A new look at the problem of energy efficiency in lithium-ion batteries

An international research team featuring two Skoltech scientists has experimentally demonstrated that a long-standing explanation for low energy efficiency in lithium-ion batteries does not hold. The researchers explained the phenomenon in terms of slow electron transfer between oxygen and transition metal atoms in the cathode, rather than the atoms themselves undergoing migration. The study came out Thursday in the journal Nature Chemistry.
