Batteries are essential for electric cars and effective use of solar and wind energy. Scientists cannot explain why batteries actual performances are much lower than what theory predicts. Development of novel microscopic “eyes” in working batteries will reveal the bottlenecks, to help us define solutions towards high performance energy storage in batteries.
