Improving the Performance of Lithium Ion Batteries with ALD Coatings from Forge Nano

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are rechargeable batteries, in which the lithium ions travel between electrodes (i.e. a cathode and an anode) in each charge-discharge cycle. These electrodes are important components in the Li-ion battery, but they eventually lose effectiveness due to Lithium ions becoming trapped or otherwise unusable, which is exacerbated by high temperatures and abusive [...]

The Processes Used to Deposit Nano-Scale Coatings: Sol-Gel, Co-precipitation, CVD, ALD and MLD

A nano-scale coating is the application of nanostructures on particles to provide various benefits. Nano-scale coatings can make surfaces water-repellent, less susceptible to degradation, more energy efficient, etc., without detracting from the primary function of the underlying material.  There are both liquid (Sol-Gel, Co-precipitation) and gas (CVD, MLD, ALD) phase processes that can be used [...]
