Powering the future with low-cost, high-performance all-solid-state batteries

by on July 14, 2017

Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology have devised a low-cost approach to developing all-solid-state batteries, improving prospects for scaling up the technology for widespread use in electric vehicles, communications and other industrial applications. Figure 1.The atomic arrangement of the new material named LSSPS Two representations of the new germanium-free material with the structure Li[SnSi]PS (Li[SnSi]P. Ever since batteries were invented over 200 years ago, there has been a drive to improve quality and performance at reduced costs. Compared to common lithium-ion batteries that contain lithium ion conducting liquids, all-solid-state batteries of the future promise a suite of…
