Abstract Lithium batteries continue to receive much attention today because they offer a number of significant advantages. However, there are major problems that must be solved and advances that can be made for these battery systems, if they are to reach even higher performance. New advances in battery technology are needed so that the great advances associated with electronic devices such as computer systems, sensors, monitoring systems and other new devices of the future can continue to develop. Battery technology is complicated and there is room for improvement in many of the components that make up this power system. Specifically, improvements in the stabilization of the electrode/electrolyte interface (lithium metal batteries), in electrolyte performance and in cell geometry and cathode structure are needed for lithium batteries. Nanoscale science and engineering has the potential to be the mechanism for addressing the concern in all of these areas. The work described here involves the improvement of battery technology by addressing problems in the component parts of batteries by using an integrated nanotechnology approach.
