A High-Energy Density And Long-Life Initial-Anode-Free Lithium Battery by Ingrid Fadelli

Lithium-metal batteries (LMBs), an emerging type of rechargeable lithium-based batteries made of solid-state metal instead of lithium-ions, are among the most promising high-energy-density rechargeable battery technologies. Although they have some advantageous characteristics, these batteries have several limitations, including a poor energy density and safety-related issues. In recent years, researchers have tried to overcome these limitations […]

Reviewing Recent Advancements In The Development Of Solid-State Batteries by Ingrid Fadelli

Solid state batteries (SSBs) are an emerging battery technology with high energy densities that could compete with lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), which power a wide range of electronic devices on the market today. In contrast with classic LIBs, SSBs have a solid ‘ceramic’-based electrolyte that separates the anode and cathode inside the battery. In some batteries, […]
