Diamond nano-threads are three times more effective than lithium-ion batteries

Queensland: Mobile phones and other devices are growing rapidly at the moment, but batteries still can't keep up with the pace to meet their needs. A new way to do this is to demonstrate a successful demonstration of energy accumulation in diamond nano-thread bundles.

Dr. Haifai Zan and colleagues at the University of Queensland in Australia have developed one-dimensional carbon nanoparticles that can be billed to store mechanical energy. These nanothapes have been observed by scientists for a long time.

After that, Professor Haifa and his colleagues thought that if the carbon nano thread derived from diamond could be filled with electricity, what would be the benefit? He observed it theoretically on computer modeling and found that 1.76 megajoules of energy could be charged per kilogram and that it could be three to four times more than even the best lithium-ion batteries.

On the other hand, this method can be a bit safer because if the batteries are made of diamond nano-thread, they will be protected from inflating, leaking, and deteriorating like normal batteries. That is why they can be easily used to run pacemakers and other devices in the human body.

In addition, if carbon-threaded batteries are made, they can be used in body patches, spacecraft, electric clothing, and other items because they have the same thread-like structure.
