Solid electrolyte will be an important focus area for CIC Energigune because a breakthrough in solid electrolyte will not only improve the safety and manufacturability of Li-based batteries by enabling an all solid-state design, but also help advance Li-air batteries by addressing the problems associated with liquid electrolytes. Major challenges for solid electrolytes are conductivity and temperature range, especially at very low temperatures. The two main research lines of this group are related to ceramic and polymer electrolytes.
- Ceramic Electrolyte
- Polymer Electrolytes
