Ultrathin aluminum oxide layer boosts performance of garnet ceramic solid-state batteries

By April Gocha / January 17, 2017

Researchers at the University of Maryland have designed a way to insert an ultrathin layer of aluminum oxide in between a garnet ceramic electrolyte and electrodes of solid-state batteries, decreasing impedance by 300-fold and allowing the energy to flow.

Gotta keep ‘em separated: Garnet ceramics find calling as Li-ion battery bouncers

By April Gocha / October 22, 2014

Scientists at Oak Ridge National Lab say that ceramics can improve the batteries of tomorrow. Testing of a garnet ceramic material LLZO suggests that it might be the perfect protector for lithium anodes in batteries that last longer and do more.
