Project description

The critical layer in a solid state battery is the electrolyte, which must be deposited conformally and with good thickness controll. To this end, lithiumsalts deposited with ALD or spincoating, will fill a porous inorganic matrix to form a solid electrolyte which improves the conductance orders of magnitude. Afterwards, these functional layers will be tested in 2D and 3D demonstrators.
