New Argonne Battery Design Offers "Solid" Advantage - Dopant‐Dependent Stability of Garnet Solid Electrolyte Interfaces with Lithium Metal

Posted by MSE Supplies Admin on

Credit: Argonne National Laboratory/Sanja Tepavcevic This multi-module ultrahigh vacuum system (in blue) allowed Argonne researchers to create and probe the interface of a solid electrolyte with a lithium metal anode without air exposure. This experiment correlated interfacial chemistry with the electrochemical response of the system. Most lithium batteries today consist of a liquid sandwiched between two solid materials. That conventional paradigm may be about to get some competition, however, as scientists have begun to investigate batteries that consist of all solid materials. Solid-state lithium batteries offer several advantages over those that use a liquid electrolyte; most notably, they allow for...

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...
