SOLID-STATE ELECTROLYTES

A NEW RANGE OF BATTERY MATERIALS

Liquid electrolyte materials, which are used in most battery technologies, have significant drawbacks in terms of their electrochemical and thermal stability as well as a low ion selectivity. 

 

The use of solid-state materials overcomes these drawbacks, as well as making available a wide new range of battery materials and enabling Li metal anodes.

Solid-state electrolytes could facilitate the much-needed development of efficient cycling, high energy density batteries to meet modern demands in terms of electric vehicles and grid storage, while adding further safety measures to such devices.
