Hollow nanocrystals may make Li-ion batteries achieve longer lives. According to Nature-Nanotechnology, a team of researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology, Zurich Federal Institute of Technology and Oak Ridge National Laboratory has discovered nanometer-sized antimony crystals spontaneously form hollow structures, which could be a boon for Li-ion batteries by letting them have higher energy densities without shorter lives. This could also stretch out the time between charges.
