UC SAN DIEGO (Tutorial A): All Solid-State Batteries and the Future of Energy Storage

Sulfide based all solid-state batteries have seen tremendous progress in recent years. However, several barriers still need to be overcome before its commercialization. Here, we discuss some obstacles faced by sulfide based solid electrolytes such as interfacial stability, characterization challenges and evaluate prototyping strategies for manufacturing scalability. Finally, we discuss potential strategies toward a sustainable […]
