Carbon nanotubes new flexible lithium battery to help wear equipment development
Release time：2017-06-15 Read：
From the Chinese Academy of Sciences was informed that recently, the National Center for Nanoscience (hereinafter referred to as "center") Wei Zhixiang researcher led by the Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Commission project "carbon nanotubes composite flexible lithium-ion battery development" through the expert group acceptance, the successful completion of the task.
Center Wei Zhixiang team innovative use of traditional lithium-ion battery used in copper foil, aluminum foil collector can be replaced by a large area of nano-composite materials, and to achieve the flexibility of the core body, and the bending process of active substances is not easy to fall off. Continuously improve innovation, flexible battery even in the winding state or thousands of times after the repeated bending, the performance is not any reduction. In addition, the center to the production and research with collaborative innovation as a guide, through cooperation with the Lenovo Institute of Innovation to achieve a flexible battery in the smart watch strap, night running warning wrist strap in the application of verification, the measured data have reached the practical Claim.
The next step, the center will be market demand-oriented, and further adapt to the intelligent wearable equipment form diversity, to meet the battery capacity and stability requirements, research and development to adapt to a variety of shape shaped flexible battery, and in the development of a higher Specific capacity of the active material and high ionic conductivity of non-liquid electrolyte, to build a new type of flexible battery systems and other aspects of the original innovation, to promote the domestic flexible battery technology continues to improve, to develop a wearable equipment market to provide a solid guarantee.
Intelligent wearable equipment applications cover fitness and health, medical and health care, industrial and military and information and entertainment, in recent years has been widespread concern, as consumer electronics hot spots. Industry giants have also begun to layout intelligent wearable equipment, the market development is extremely rapid. According to market research firm IDTechEx released the latest report shows that 2016 wearable equipment market size will exceed 30 billion US dollars, by 2026 will reach 150 billion US dollars. When lightweight, miniaturization has become a key competitive point, flexible battery technology breakthrough innovation, will be intelligent wearable market into the high-speed development period and the market mature an important part.
From the Internet age to the mobile Internet era, and then to the Internet of Things era, intelligent wearable equipment will become the consumer networking support. In the realization of functional innovation at the same time, the battery technology innovation has become the smart wearable equipment can be the key to rapid development. Flexible lithium-ion battery has excellent performance and can be bent, you can effectively use the intelligent wearable equipment "invalid" space to solve the problem of battery life.
