"BESS developed an innovative process to build nanostructures that enable energy storage capacity, faster charging rates, and a longer lifetime for lithium-ion batteries" - any details about this technology?

Hi iniewski. The technology BESS-Technologies licensed has three components: (1) a novel silicon/silicide chemistry that provides at least 3x the capacity of graphite while mitigating the passivation problem upon formation of the SEI layer (the anode has been tested for +1000 cycles), (2) a hyperbranched nanostructure that avoids pulverization and improves charging time and power density (the anode can have more than 2 orders of magnitude higher surface area than bulk silicon), and (3) a simple manufacturing process that uses well known, scalable PVD and CVD processes. It is also worth to note that, as opposed to many "nano-silicon" solutions advertised, this anode technology does not require the use of carbon or any type of binder material to work.

thank you Fernando, sounds exciting...would you be interested in giving a talk on this topic at emerging technologies symposium in Whistler in 2013? details at www.cmoset.com, kris.iniewski@gmail.com

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
