Nano-sized electrodes are revealing how materials in rechargeable batteries fare during use. Charging nano-wire electrodes causes lithium ions to push in, fattening, lengthening and changing the crystal character of the electrode material. The nano-sized electrodes are potentially more resilient than electrodes made from bulk material.
