Energy Storage May Blossom with Nanoflower Made from Crystalline Compound

October 16th, 2012 | by Rachel Nuwer

Science, nature and art seemingly collide in the latest research to emerge from the laboratory of materials scientist Linyou Cao. From Cao and his colleagues’ reactors and furnaces, a luminous, bright pink chrysanthemum-like creation has bloomed. They call it a germanium sulfide flower, and they hope it will reinvent energy storage.

“Electronic materials are the key challenge for development of new types of batteries,” Cao says. “Increased capacity and energy density would be the most interesting features that I can imagine for the nanosheet flower structure regarding energy storage.”
