High Performance, Energy-Dense, Practical, And Reliable Solid-State Batteries (ORNL)

A technical paper titled “Tailoring of the Anti-Perovskite Solid Electrolytes at the Grain-Scale” was published by researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Abstract: "The development of thin, dense, defect-free solid electrolyte films is key for achieving practical and commercially viable solid-state batteries. Herein, we showcase a facile processing pathway for antiperovskite (Li2OH... » read more

Antiferroelectric negative capacitance from a structural phase transition in zirconia

New research paper from 24-person research team from Berkeley, Georgia Tech, MIT, and other institutions. Abstract "Crystalline materials with broken inversion symmetry can exhibit a spontaneous electric polarization, which originates from a microscopic electric dipole moment. Long-range polar or anti-polar order of such permanent dipoles gives rise to ferroelectricity or antiferroelectrici... » read more
