The Past, Present and Future of Batteries and Microbatteries (pdf)
By Mark A. Daugherty, Ph.D. and David A. Walker
A white paper issued by Enable IPC Corporation in 2007. This is meant as an introduction to batteries.
Fabrication and electrochemical characterization of a vertical array of MnO2 nanowires grown on silicon substrates as a cathode material for lithium rechargeable batteries (Link to an online abstract)
Journal of Power Sources
By Jae-Hun Kim, Tarak Ayalasomayajula, Venkata Gona and Daniel Choi
August 15, 2008, Vol 183, Issue 1, pp 366-369.
An abstract of a technical article written by personnel at the University of Idaho. Our microbattery concept uses nanowires -- tiny poles that stand on end -- which serve to increase surface area and allows for additional power.
