Why do batteries fail?

M. R. Palacín*, A. de Guibert, Science 05 Feb 2016: Vol. 351, Issue 6273, pp. DOI: 10.1126/science.1253292

Battery failure and gradual performance degradation (aging) are the result of complex interrelated phenomena that depend on battery chemistry, design, environment, and the actual operation conditions. The current available knowledge on these matters results from a vast combination of experimental and modeling approaches. We explore the state of the art with respect to materials as well as usage (temperature, charge/discharge rate, etc.) for lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, nickel–metal hydride, and lithium-ion chemistries. Battery diagnosis strategies and plausible developments related to large-scale battery applications are also discussed.

    Transfer printing is one of the key nanofabrication techniques for the large‐scale manufacturing of complex device architectures. It provides a cost‐effective and high‐throughput route for the integration of independently processed materials into spatially tailored architectures.
