Symposium ES03-Solid-State Batteries

Solid-state batteries (SSB) are one of the most promising candidates for next-generation energy storage technologies due to their improved safety and energy density. The performance of SSBs depends critically on the ionic/electronic transport that occurs across multiple length scales in a cell under a multi-physics coupling field (electro-chemo-mechanics). The outstanding challenges in SSBs, including chemical, electrochemical, and mechanical degradations, are deeply rooted in the inter-correlated mass, charge, and heat transport processes. Therefore, multidisciplinary research efforts are imperative for realizing economical and long-lasting SSBs.

This symposium will convene state-of-the-art research in solid-state energy-storage systems. It covers the latest discovery and progress in: (1) the fundamental transport mechanisms in SSBs due to electro-chemo-mechanical coupling, (2) the advanced characterizations in the field of SSBs, and (3) the development and practical applications of SSB technology.

Topics will include:

  • Materials design for solid-state ionic conductors for Li, Na, and emerging batteries
  • Dendrite suppression in SSBs
  • Ion diffusion and charge transfer in electrode materials and interfaces for SSBs
  • Investigations on electro-chemo-mechanics in SSBs
  • Advanced characterization of transport phenomena in materials and interfaces for SSB
  • Novel cell and architecture design for SSBs
