Safety issues are of enormous concern in developing advanced energy storage systems, especially lithium technologies. Commercial Li-ion batteries contain flammable organic liquid electrolytes and corresponding technical challenges; most incidents involving Li-ion batteries were caused by the ignition of the electrolyte. The main aim of this proposal is to assemble a completely solid-state cell using an inorganic Li-ion superconductor to benefit from its superior electrochemical, mechanical and thermal stability, the impossibility of leakage, and the possibility of battery miniaturization.
I am always looking for new team members, especially PhD and Master students. If you are an engineer or bachelor student also feel free to contact me for more information.
