Mr Whittingham, who has become the second Briton to win a Nobel Prize this year, developed the first functioning lithium battery in the early 1970s.

The battery's potential was doubled by Mr Goodenough, with Mr Yoshino making the batteries safer to use.

Mr Yoshino spoke on Japanese television after hearing about his win, saying that he was happy to have helped develop more environmentally friendly forms of power.

"I hope this will become an encouragement for young researchers," he said.
