Abstract

original image

Current technology: A lithium-based storage device with both high power and high energy densities is formed by a nanocomposite composed of a framework of three-dimensional glass networks with uniform channels. The channels are filled by electrolyte solution and act as a lithium-ion path and the framework contains an electronic conductive oxide and therefore act as an electronic path (see picture).
