Unlocking the Potential of Cation-Disordered Oxides for Rechargeable Lithium Batteries

In today’s lithium batteries, those cathodes are usually made of an orderly crystalline material, sometimes in a layered structure. When slight deviations from that perfect order are introduced, the battery’s efficiency generally goes down — so disordered materials have mostly been ignored in the search for improved battery materials.
