MANHATTAN, KAN. — even batteries can use a boost of according to the focus of a Kansas University graduate student’s

Steven Arnold Klankowski, a candidate in chemistry, La Crescent, is working under Jun Li, professor of to develop new materials that be used in future lithium-ion The materials look to improve the storage capacity of batteries so laptops, cellphones, electric and other mobile devices last longer between

Additionally, lithium-ion batteries can store energy and deliver more rapidly will be a viable alternative power for vehicles and machines powered by energy, Klankowski said. For solar- and wind-powered technologies switch to the battery in the evening there is a lack of wind or to produce energy.

The battery is moving very fast days as everyone is trying to get an for their electric vehicles and said Klankowski, who also has a in materials engineering. As our devices get so must our methods to supply amounts of portable electrical to power these devices.

For his research, Klankowski is developing and a high-performance nanostructure of silicon onto carbon nanofibers for the use as an in lithium-ion batteries. The electrodes, look like a dense give the battery greater capabilities and storage capacity. is anticipated to replace current electrodes that are made simple carbon-based materials.

The being developed and improved by helps the electrode store 10 times the amount of energy as electrodes — giving the a 10-15 percent improvement in battery technology.

We’re trying to go for higher capacity, Klankowski said. To do we’re looking at if we can store energy per the electrode’s size or and if we can use that energy more to make the battery like a Batteries and capacitors are on opposite of the energy storage field.

like to move them closer together.

In the lab, looks at how the characteristics of the lithium-silicon-alloy differ with each cycle and how those characteristics can be to move lithium-ion batteries to capacitors.

The material is also studied for its to store energy. Tests, simulate a battery’s operation, charge and discharge the material energy.

According to U.S. of Energy’s requirements, a battery remain at 80 percent capacity 300 charge-discharge cycles.

A battery tends to die after 400-500 or three years, Klankowski One of the things we’ll want to on is that lasting performance. It be much of an advantage if your battery can last for 36 hours for the few months but then only two after that.

With the progress we are seeing, I one day to drive from Manhattan to my house in Minnesota on a single change.

A patent application for the has been filed with State University Research The foundation is a nonprofit corporation for managing technology transfer at the university.

Klankowski was one of five students at Kansas State to recently earn a scholarship the research foundation to help him develop his research.
