Significant research efforts, mostly experimental, have been devoted to finding high-performance anode materials for new generation batteries. Here, first-principles calculations were performed to investigate the possible effects of doping defects and the varying tube diameter of carbon nanotubes (CNTs)on their potential for battery applications.
• Our batteries are lightweight, ultrathin, low cost, flame resistant, with a high source of energy storage and production.
• It can operate over an extreme range of temperatures (from -45° C to150° C).
• Self-life of 3-5years.
• These are rechargeable batteries and can be recharged up to or greater than 2000 cycles.
• It works like a pseudo capacitor (fast charging).
• They are eco-friendly devices made up of primarily non-toxic engineered nanocarbon material.
• They have high tensile strength, where the voltages can be adjusted through stacking and slicing. Batteries are recyclable.
• Hydrolytic Stability: Low Water uptake.
• Chemically resistant to acids and bases.
• High-Temperature resistance.
