Multi-scale microscopy of the Li/electrolyte interface in solid-state next-generation batteries
The transition to renewable energy sources is dependent on the availability of sufficient storage. To meet these urgent demands, scientists are racing to find new battery chemistries and architectures One of the promising next-generation technologies is all-solid lithium (Li) batteries, which utilizes ion-conducting solids such as β-Li3PS4 (LPS) ceramic in place of conventional organic liquid electrolytes. This enables use of a Li metal anode which increases theoretical capacity, improves battery safety by replacing flammable liquid electrolytes, and in some cases widens the stable voltage window ...
