Probing Lithium Ions Near a Solid’s Surface Reveals Clues to Boost Solid-State Battery Performance

April 28, 2023

Using computer simulations and X-ray experiments, researchers could “see” in detail why lithium ions move slowly in a solid-state battery—specifically, at the electrolyte-electrode interface. The work could lead to new strategies to enhance ionic conductivity in solid-state batteries.

A New Solid-state Battery Surprises the Researchers Who Created It

September 23, 2021

Engineers created a new type of battery that weaves two promising battery sub-fields into a single battery. The battery uses both a solid state electrolyte and an all-silicon anode, making it a silicon all-solid-state battery.

Pathways Toward Realizing the Promise of All-Solid-State Batteries

March 13, 2020

UC San Diego nanoengineers offer a research roadmap describing four challenges that need to be addressed in order to advance a promising class of batteries, all-solid-state batteries, to commercialization. The researchers describe their work to tackle these challenges over the past three years.

New Material is Next Step Toward Stable High-voltage Long-life Solid-state Sodium-ion Batteries

February 23, 2021

A team of researchers designed and manufactured a new sodium-ion conductor for solid-state sodium-ion batteries that is stable when incorporated into higher-voltage oxide cathodes. This new solid electrolyte could dramatically improve the efficiency and lifespan of this class of batteries.

Setting the Stage for Solid-State Battery Success

August 2, 2022

Battery researchers and other engineers from UC San Diego, with collaboration from the LG Energy Solution, outline three categories of engineering challenges that must be solved in order to transition all-solid-state batteries from the laboratory toward large-scale industrial manufacturing.

Engineers develop algorithms to switch out and recharge battery modules in electric cars

September 16, 2014

Imagine being able to switch out the batteries in electric cars just like you switch out batteries in a photo camera or flashlight. A team of engineers at the University of California, San Diego, are trying to accomplish just that, in partnership with a local San Diego engineering company.

Researchers Transform an Amorphous Solid Into a New Lithium-Ion Battery Material

May 2, 2022

Researchers at UC San Diego and Boise State University have developed a new approach to making novel lithium-ion battery materials. The approach transforms a non-crystalline material into a crystalline anode material with exceptional battery properties—by cycling it with lithium.

…work in the fields of electrochemistry, electrochemical engineering, or solid-state science and technology.

Electrolytes Made from Liquefied Gas Enable Batteries to Run at Ultra-low Temperatures

June 15, 2017

…electrolytes that enable lithium batteries to run at temperatures as low as -60 degrees Celsius with excellent performance—in comparison, today’s lithium-ion batteries stop working at -20 degrees Celsius. The new electrolytes also enable electrochemical capacitors to run as cold as -80 degrees Celsius—their current limit is -40 degrees Celsius.

What’s Causing the Voltage Fade in Lithium-rich NMC Cathode Materials?

July 16, 2018

Researchers led by a University of California San Diego team have published work in the journal Nature Energy that explains what’s causing the performance-reducing “voltage fade” that currently plagues a promising class of cathode materials called Lithium-rich NMC (nickel magnesium cobalt) layered oxides.
