Topic Close-up #10
Symposium A07: Solid State Batteries
Symposium focus: Batteries employing solid-electrolytes have the potential to significantly improve the safety and performance electrochemical energy storage, by replacing the flammable liquid electrolytes currently employed in Li-ion batteries. In recent years, there has been an explosion of research into new solid electrolyte chemistries, including ceramics, polymers, and composites. However, there are several critical challenges that remain, including interfacial compatibility with electrodes, coupled chemical-electrochemical-mechanical phenomena at solid-solid interfaces, degradation under high power densities, and manufacturing. This symposium takes an interdisciplinary look at the challenges and opportunities facing solid-state battery systems, including materials processing, characterization, and device performance.
Confirmed invited speakers: Nitash Balsara, Donald Siegel, Michael Zimmerman, Eric Wachsman, Kiyoshi Kanamura, Matthew McDowell, Kelsey Hatzell, Patrick Bonnick, Grigorii Soloveichik, and more.
