By starting with liquid electrolytes and then transforming them into solid polymers […]

Shinshu University researchers have developed a new way to improve solid state lithium ion battery efficiency. Through the growth of a cubic crystal layer, the scientists have created a thin and dense connecting layer between the electrodes of the battery. Rechargeable lithium ion batteries power such devices as cell phones, laptops, power tools, and are […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers’ new study unravels the properties of a promising new material for all solid state lithium ion batteries, which could be safer and longer-lasting than traditional batteries. The team at MIT probed the mechanical properties of a sulfide-based solid electrolyte material to determine its mechanical performance when incorporated into batteries. […]
