Freezing Lithium Batteries May Make Them Safer and Bendable

by |April 28th, 2017

Columbia Engineers use ice-templating to control electrolyte structure in lithium batteries; solid-state is non-flammable, non-toxic, and flexible with longer battery life Schematic of vertically aligned and connected ceramic channels for enhancing ionic conduction. In the left figure, ceramic particles are randomly dispersed in the polymer matrix, where ion transport is blocked by the polymer matrix… read more
