Defect-free surfaces may be key to preventing formation of lithium dendrites, advancing solid-state batteries

By April Gocha / July 14, 2017

New research from MIT shows that firmness isn’t the most important parameter for developing a solid electrolyte that is effective against dendrite formation—instead, a defect-free surface, which doesn’t provide a place for dendrites to form, is key to a better battery.
