Junior Prof. Abhishek Chetan – Solid State Batteries: What’s the hype all about?

Institute for Combustion Technology, RWTH Aachen University


The electric vehicle (EV) boom is here, and probably here to stay, if we want to have any realistic shot at a more sustainable way of living. However, EVs are still a rather young technology and have a long way to go before they reach a developmental plateau. The central component of an EV is its rechargeable battery, and the way batteries are constructed, i.e. by swapping out the gel, or liquid, electrolyte for a solid one, as well as the anode, can have incredible improvements on essentially all aspects of battery performance. This talk will start from the very basics of the components of a typical battery, the technical requirements at different scales, the state-of-the-art cells available in the market and the direction the winds seem to be heading. The talk will introduce the idea of Solid State Batteries and why the research and financial resources required to realize such a battery are well worth the investment.
