Researchers say $1M Project Will Improve Understanding, Optimization

 

Solid-state lithium batteries have generated interest because they don’t carry the same risk of fire and explosion as conventional batteries with liquid electrolytes, but full-scale commercialization has been slowed, in part, because scientists don’t fully understand what causes the batteries to fail.
