How some battery materials expand without cracking
Boston MA (SPX) Apr 13, 2017
When you charge a battery, or when you use it, it's not just electricity but also matter that moves around inside.

In fact, it's been a longstanding mystery why fairly brittle electrode materials don't crack under the strain of these e ... more
