GHz nanoscale electrical and dielectric measurements of the solid-electrolyte interface and applications in the battery manufacturing line

Project description

Improving the performance and safety of lithium–ion battery cells

The growing global energy demands have been driving innovation in energy storage methods, a promising one being lithium–ion batteries. In battery production, the electrolyte decomposes on the electrode to form the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI). This layer, which is about 50 nanometres thick, is fragile and determines to a large extent the state of health and the life cycle of the cell. The EU-funded NanoBat project is developing a toolbox that contains ultrafast high-frequency methods that can test and quantify electrical processes at the SEI, several orders of magnitude better than currently available techniques. The new techniques will improve cell production and testing, creating multiple benefits for manufacturers and customers. These include reduced waste and energy consumption as well as longer-lasting batteries that demonstrate improved thermal runaway.
