Tesla may purchase large scale nickel metal for lithium iron phosphate batteries (LFP batteries). The company has officially secured approval to produce and sell a new Model 3 with cheaper LFP batteries in China. Early on, the company adopted its version of the energy-dense lithium nickel-cobalt-aluminum oxides (NCA) battery cell for its electric vehicles, which went against most of the industry who uses nickel-cobalt-manganese (NCM) cells.


Cobalt/Molybdenum Disulfide Heterostructure for Next-Gen Semiconductors

A character study and analysis of the "cobalt/molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) heterostructure" has been conducted by the researchers from the National Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (NSRRC) and found that this new material combination is expected to lead semiconductors to break through physical limits.


Cobalt-Free Lithium-Ion Battery Reduces Costs Without Sacrificing Performance

To develop a cobalt-free lithium-ion battery, the University of Texas at Austin (UT) researchers replaced the cobalt element in the traditional lithium-ion battery with nickel, reducing costs without negatively impacting performance. As a relatively rare and precious heavy metal, cobalt plays a vital role in today's lithium batteries. However, researchers from the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin say they’ve cracked the code to a cobalt-free high-energy lithium-ion battery, eliminating the cobalt and opening the door to reducing the costs of producing batteries while boosting performance in some ways.
