ORNL‘s polymer and ceramic composite promises better solid-state electrolyte for lithium metal batteries

Wed, 05/20/2020 - 10:56 -- Paul Crompton

Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have developed a thin film, highly conductive solid-state electrolyte made of a polymer and ceramic-based composite for lithium metal batteries. 

The electrolyte’s novel design is a three-dimensional interconnected structure that can provide mechanical robustness and high lithium ionic conductivity at room temperature.
