Damage Free Way to Gauge Health of Next-Gen Batteries for EVs

Damage Free Way to Gauge Health of Next-Gen Batteries for EVs

Researchers have demonstrated that electrochemical impedance spectroscopy can be a powerful non-destructive tool to study the degradation mechanisms of all-solid-state lithium metal batteries. They studied ceramic-based all-solid-state Li metal batteries prepared by aerosol deposition and heating, identifying the specific interface responsible for the drop in performance. Their work accurately highlights the engineering hurdles that need to be overcome to bring these top-in-class batteries to the market.
