ETA Distinguished Lecture: New Solutions for Rechargeable Batteries
The ability to use safely an alkali-metal anode in a rechargeable battery would increase the energy density and cycle life of a battery cell for a given cathode. The talk will illustrate the successful realization of dendrite-free potassium, sodium, and lithium rechargeable batteries having liquid, polymer, or solid electrolytes. Some features of a remarkable glass electrolyte having a Li+ or Na+ cation conductivity δi > 10-2 S cm-1 at 25°C, stability on contact with metallic lithium or sodium, and a window to 9 eV will also be presented.
