A New Breakthrough Glass Electrolyte-based All-Solid-State Battery, Holds 3X Charge, Safer, and Last Longer

Posted by MSE Supplies on

MSE Supplies: Electric car sales posted an estimated 60% growth rate in 2016. They’re poised for rapid adoption by 2022, when the cost of EVs is projected be same as internal combustion cars. However, the rapid adoption of EVs is dependent on the development of better performance and lower cost and safe batteries.  In addition to EVs, the ubiquitous handheld electronic devices and wearables are all hungry for longer life and safe batteries that are yet to be developed.   The good news is that a breakthrough new glass electrolyte-based all solid-state battery has been developed by UT Austin researchers, led by the Li-ion battery inventor...

Solid Electrolytes for Lithium Ion Batteries

Posted by MSE Supplies on

A lithium Superionic Conductor: Li10GeP2S12 Nature Materials 10, 682–686 (2011) doi:10.1038/nmat3066 MSE Supplies has special offering of Li10GeP2S12 powder with an Ionic Conductivity of 8.1 × 10−3 S/cm at room temperature.       Batteries are a key technology in modern society1, 2. They are used to power electric and hybrid electric vehicles and to store wind and solar energy in smart grids. Electrochemical devices with high energy and power densities can currently be powered only by batteries with organic liquid electrolytes. However, such batteries require relatively stringent safety precautions, making large-scale systems very complicated and expensive. The application of solid electrolytes is currently limited because...
