2020 roadmap on solid-state batteries

utilised ex-situ and in-situ operando characterisation techniques

This roadmap of the work by The Faraday Institution's SOLBAT project, begun in 2017, explains why a new generation of solid state batteries (SSB) is desired by the electric vehicle industry over Li-ion versions, and the challenges faced with creating these higher density, longer lasting batteries.

The paper is an overview of the fundamental challenges impeding the development of SSB, the advances in science and technology necessary to understand the underlying science, and the multidisciplinary approach being taken by SOLBAT researchers in facing these challenges.
