U Mich team develops 1,000-cycle lithium-sulfur battery

Green Car Congress

A University of Michigan team has shown that a network of aramid nanofibers, recycled from Kevlar, can enable lithium-sulfur batteries to overcome their Achilles heel of cycle life, delivering an estimated 1,000 real-world cycles. Biomimetic engineering of these batteries integrated two scales—molecular and nanoscale.
