Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… The so-called ‘solid-state batteries‘ are considered one of the ‘Holy Grails’ of battery research. The Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research has reported important progress. The team’s research paper has been published in the journal Nature Communications. Solid-state batteries no longer have a liquid core, as is the case with today’s batteries, but consist […]

This is a major steppingstone towards realization of commercial all-solid-state batteries. Solid-state battery‘s high surface resistance causes these batteries to have low output, limiting their applications. The researchers have employed a novel […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Tokyo University of Science (TUS) researchers have demonstrated a metal-organic framework-based magnesium ion conductor showing superionic conductivity even at room temperature. Magnesium is a promising material for such solid-state batteries owing to its abundance, but its practical application is limited by the poor conductivity of magnesium ions (Mg2+) in solids at room temperature. The […]

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 […]
