A new method could improve energy storage of everything from portable electronics to electric microgrids. Scientists have developed a new X-ray imaging technique to visualize and study the reactions in lithium-ion rechargeable batteries containing a new type of material called iron fluoride.

"Iron fluoride has the potential to triple the amount of energy a conventional lithium-ion battery can store," said Song Jin, one of the researchers, in a news release. "However, we have yet to tap its true potential."
