Copper ions flow like liquid through crystalline structures

Copper ions flow like liquid through crystalline structures

Materials scientists have sussed out the physical phenomenon underlying the promising electrical properties of a class of materials called superionic crystals. A better understanding of such materials could lead to safer and more efficient rechargeable batteries than the current standard-bearer of lithium ion. Becoming a popular topic of study only within the past five years, superionic crystals are a cross between a liquid and a solid.
