Silicon Nanowires

Stanford University researchers have developed "silicon nanowires" that dramatically improve the performance of lithium-ion batteries. Silicon is superior to the electrode material used in today's batteries but in previous configurations tended to wear out quickly. Stanford's nanowires are more durable and, when incorporated in Li-ion batteries, give them 10 times the power of current versions.

For more information on Stanford's research read their own coverage of their breakthroughs.
