3D-Printed Lithium-Ion Battery Is the Size of a Pinhead
7/9/2013

Harvard University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and visiting researchers from South Korea have demonstrated the ability to 3D print a pinhead-sized battery. These interlaced and stacked electrodes were printed layer by layer to create the working anode and cathode.(Source: Jennifer A. Lewis/Harvard University)

Yikes, in the photo it appears to be just 800 microns wide. That's really small. I, too, wonder how many microamp-hours it can store. Sounds like its main application is to power sensors.

3D printing as a disruptive technology

It seems there is no end to what can be done using 3D printing, which is proving to be a truly disruptive technology and has the potential to be as game-changing as the Internet itself in terms of its effect on how we do things. This research shows advances not only in this area, but also continued efforts to improve lithium-ion battery chemistries and design forms. Will be interesting to see if something like this makes it out of the research lab.
