Sandia National Laboratories’ new study tackled a long-held assumption that adding some liquid electrolyte to improve performance would make solid-state batteries unsafe. Instead, the research team found that in many cases solid-state batteries with a little liquid electrolyte were safer than their lithium-ion counterparts. They also found, if the battery were to short-circuit, releasing all […]

Université de Genève researchers have developed a new material that improves the performance of solid-state sodium batteries. Sodium chemistry is a less dangerous and a more durable alternative to lithium. The future of battery technologies could lie in sodium. Sodium chemistry could be more sustainable than lithium, which currently powers most of our devices and […]

Tokyo Institute of Technology researchers have brought all solid state batteries one step closer to becoming the powerhouse of next-generation electronics. The researchers from Tokyo Tech, AIST, and Yamagata University have introduced a strategy to restore the batteries low electrical resistance. They also explore the underlying reduction mechanism, paving the way for a more fundamental […]

A Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech), Tohoku University, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, and Nippon Institute of Technology experiment demonstrated that a clean electrolyte/electrode interface is key to realizing high-capacity solid-state lithium batteries. The findings may show the way for improved battery designs with increased capacity, stability, and safety for both […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Université de Genève scientists have developed a non-flammable, solid electrolyte that operates at room temperature. It transports sodium – which is found everywhere on earth – instead of lithium. The lithium batteries that power our electronic devices and electric vehicles have a number of drawbacks. The electrolyte – the medium that enables electrons and […]
