Transparent Lithium-Ion Battery For Your New Laptop?

A pair of Stanford graduate students, Yi Cui and Yuan Yang research materials science on a regular basis, and have discovered something rather interesting, that is, they developed a transparent packaging for the battery.

How they did this was quite interesting, they reduced the size of the battery electrodes so small that they were invisible to the human eye.

Furthermore, the duo chose to use a structure of meshed electrodes, rather than using thin films. For flexibility, the researchers turned to a clear substance that is often used for contact lenses.
