It takes years to advance a consequential new battery from concept to commercialization. For proof, look no further than this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Stanley Whittingham developed the first lithium-ion battery in 1976, John Goodenough improved cathode performance in 1980, and Akira Yoshino made it practical for commercialization in 1991—a total of fifteen years from start to finish. The lithium-ion battery has powered the mobile revolution since its introduction.
In February, we distributed a press release with the headline, Enovix Corporation Charts Course to Production and Commercialization of its 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion Battery. The release noted that we were sampling cells to leading mobile device producers with rated energy density over 900 Wh/l and cycle life over 500. Enovix CEO, Harrold Rust, stated, ““To our knowledge, no other company has developed a lithium-ion cell with a 100% silicon anode
