Bunsen Colloquium 2018
We are happy to announce the third Bunsen Colloquium on Solid-State Batteries. It will take place from November 14 to 16, 2018 in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
Solid-state batteries (SSB) are based exclusively on solid inorganic or solid polymer electrolytes and electrodes. While conventional liquid electrolyte-based batteries slowly reach their limits, SSB attract growing interest for their expected stability, safety and the intrinsic separator function of solid electrolytes. The latter may enable the use of lithium metal anodes thereby raising hope for a boost in battery capacity. However, despite the promises, many interfacial and chemo-mechanical challenges are yet to be solved and cell-designs for SSB need to be developed. Moreover, the production of SSB may require completely new concepts for processing. Consequently, these issues are in the focus of the ongoing research.
It is the goal of this Bunsen Colloquium to present the current state of the art and to bring together experts from different fields – ranging from electrochemistry and materials science to solid-state physics and engineering. We particularly aim to link scientists from universities and research institutes with researchers from the industry, in order to stimulate an intensive exchange on the theoretical and practical limitations of SSB, and to discuss most recent scientific achievements.
We are looking forward to your participation!
