3D imaging of solid state batteries

Battery technology is vital for storing renewable energy, which is inherently intermittent. In order to match these intermittent energy sources (such as the wind and sun) to real world patterns of use, we need reliable and durable energy storage technologies. Increasing the energy density and range of operating temperatures are much needed advancements for next generation batteries. Currently safety issues accompany efforts to increase the energy densities of mature liquid electrolyte based batteries. All solid state batteries are a promising technology for their potential for higher energy densities and range of operating temperatures. In this work, we will use neutron and X-ray imaging to investigate the performance of all state-of-the-art batteries.
