Liquid K–Na Alloy Anode Enables Dendrite‐Free Potassium Batteries

Dendrites – sharp spikes of atoms – frequently form on the sodium (Na) or potassium (K) surface of a battery and can cause an internal short‐circuit. By contrast, mixing Na and K results in a room‐temperature K–Na liquid alloy which allows for a dendrite-free large‐capacity battery. Here, a schematic of how researchers are making liquid‐alloy anodes to suppress dendrite formation.
