Iron Pyrite Quantum Dots
USED IN THE qSAFE CATHODE
The cathode of the qSafe power cell is made of iron pyrite quantum dots (QDs). These QDs are energy efficient due to their lightweight nature. The cathode of the qSafe power cell will go through an intercalation reaction, as shown in the diagram above. Currently, technological limitations prevent this intercalation reaction from taking place with iron pyrite QDs, causing a much more unstable conversion reaction to occur instead. With future technological advances, the more stable intercalation reaction can be used with iron pyrite QDs in the qSafe power cell, allowing for a more efficient and stable battery.
