Single-Ion Conducting Polymer Electrolytes for High-Energy Lithium Batteries

In order to broaden and strengthen the future application of lithium batteries, it is highly important to further increase their energy density without compromising their safety. In this regard, the use of metallic lithium as anode material is considered the next big step forward in battery research, but this requires the realization of electrolyte materials […]

The Role of the SEI in Lithium and Calcium Metal Batteries

Due to their high energy density and theoretical specific capacity, alkali and alkaline earth metal anodes are gaining increasing attention. Lithium metal is the most investigated anode candidate for next generation batteries. However, the commercialization of lithium metal anodes is still delayed by several drawbacks. Lithium metal reacts with the electrolyte, forming an inhomogeneous solid […]
