Quotes

The lead researcher at MIT, Donald Sadoway, says: "the new formula allows the battery to work at a temperature more than 200°c lower than the previous formulation. in addition to the lower operating temperature, which should simplify the battery's design and extend its working life, the new formulation will be less expensive to make."
MIT John F Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry Donald Sadoway said: "we hoped [the characteristics of the two metals] would be nonlinear."
