HINDERING DENDRITE GROWTH IN LITHIUM METAL BATTERIES

Project description

Lithium batteries that can 'heal' themselves

The EU-funded HIDDEN project plans to develop self-healing processes that could extend the lifespan of lithium–metal batteries by 50 % and thus allow production of durable next-generation batteries with 50 % higher energy density compared to traditional lithium–ion batteries over total lifetime. Major focus will be placed on producing novel self-healing thermotropic liquid crystalline electrolytes and piezoelectric separator technologies. Multiscale modelling of electrolyte design will enable researchers to gain valuable insight into dendrite growth that plagues lithium-metal batteries. The project brings together partners from both academia and industry with expertise in battery chemistry and physics, material modelling, printing and coating, and industrial battery cell assembly.
