Groundbreaking research to extend battery life and improve safety

  • At ASU, researchers are developing new materials for high conductivity solid-state electrolytes and solid-state batteries, lithium-sulfur batteries, and high energy and power density batteries.
  • Researchers conduct evaluation of lithium-ion batteries under wide-temperature range and repeated mechanical flexing/bending.
  • Researchers work to develop a smart way to utilize the phenomenon to extend the life of lithium-metal batteries while maintaining their high energy density.
