Copolymer Helps Make Flexible Li-Ion Battery Electrodes
Flexible, stretchable electronics—a concept that until recently seemed radical—is starting to turn objects such as clothing into powerful gadgets. These devices, which could monitor and relay information about a wearer’s health, for example, could become more widely available if there were thin, flexible batteries to power them. But most batteries are bulky and rigid and their components are often brittle.
Researchers have taken a step toward overcoming that obstacle by hybridizing a candidate for lithium-ion . . .
