Gallery: Researchers Develop Safer Solid Electrolyte Lithium-Ion Batter...

 

Most lithium-ion batteries rely on liquid electrolytes to conduct ions between a negatively charged anode and a positively charge cathode – however liquid electrolytes run into safety problems due to their flammability. Now a team of researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has developed a safer nano-structured solid electrolyte that is able to conduct ions 1,000 times faster than previous electrolytes of its kind.
