Indium coating to stabilise batteries: American Researchers have found out that indium coatings can improve the performance of high-capacity lithium metal anodes in rechargeable batteries. According to the scientists’ results, the coating enables very fast surface diffusion of lithium ions and high chemical resistance to liquid electrolytes. Furthermore, the new technique undergoes reversible alloying reactions with lithium ions. Indium could thus contribute to form a stable, passivating layer that prevents further contact between the reactive metal electrodes and the electrolyte, the researcher team states.
