Symposium ET01—Solid-State BatteriesMaterials, Interfaces and Performance

Solid-state batteries are emerging as attractive solution to provide safe energy storage solution for a range of technologies, including consumer electronics, electric vehicle and renewable energies. However, there are still grand challenges in fundamental research and understanding to accelerate solid state energy storage besides liquid-based systems and beyond thin film batteries toward commercial reality, which include new materials and structures with high ionic conductivity, tailored mixed electron/ion conductivity, novel interface engineering methodologies, new device concepts, efficient and scalable techniques for materials and battery processing, and system-level integrations. This new MRS symposium is intended to provide a forum for scientists and engineers working in solid state batteries and in solid state electrochemistry, from materials, characterizations, devices and system integrations to communicate recent progress on current all-solid-state batteries technologies and to exchange ideas about next-generation solutions.

Topics will include:

  • Solid state electrolytes: oxides, sulfides, polymers, hybrids
  • Charge and mass transport at interfaces
  • Nanoionics
  • Advanced solid state batteries and new device concepts (3D structures, flexible solid state batteries)
  • Battery failure mechanism in solid state batteries
  • Solid state battery diagnostics (Neutron, X-ray, TEM, Raman)
  • Solid state batteries for electronics, electric vehicle and grid storage
  • Low cost materials, manufacturing and process approaches
  • Modeling and simulation of devices from atomic to device scale
