Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Argonne National Lab, and Oak Ridge National Lab are joining forces to pilot a bundle licensing project for IP developed around the solid-state Li-ion batteries.
Primary Application Area: Energy, Efficiency
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Argonne National Lab, and Oak Ridge National Lab are joining forces to pilot a bundle licensing project for IP developed around the solid-state Li-ion batteries. The IP identified in the bundle includes MOF based polymer electrolytes, block copolymer electrolytes, solid electrolyte protective coating, and Li-metal deposition technologies.
FIGURES OF MERIT:
Value Proposition: T• Safer batteries: Solid state batteries eliminate the use of liquid or gel electrolytes, which are very reactive with electrodes under high temperature causing explosion or catch fire.
• Last longer: Solid state batteries have the potential to deliver 10x higher energy density than conventional Li-ion batteries.
• Enable innovative battery designs – extremely small and thin: Because solid state batteries combine the separators and the electrolytes into a single ceramic or polymer, they provide tremendous versatility in battery design and allow the stacking of cells in a single package without battery shorting.
High cycling abilities: Solid state batteries are capable of achieving more than 10X the cycles of the conventional Li-ion batteries.
