New electrode material preserves its volume, solving a major limitation of solid-state batteries

Solid-state batteries (SSBs) offer several potential advantages over current lithium-ion batteries, including improved safety and faster charging. However, SSBs suffer from a problem that limits their durability. When lithium ions are inserted into or extracted from the electrodes, the crystalline structure of the material changes, making the electrode expand or shrink. These repeated changes in… Read more »

Advanced Thermal Barriers: How To Transform Your Thermal Runaway Mitigation Strategy

Battery engineers face the challenge of maximizing a vehicle’s performance while optimizing thermal runaway propagation protection. In this webinar, we will explore the role of compression pads and cell-to-cell barriers in managing mechanical and thermal energy inside modules and/or packs. Attendees will develop an understanding of possible solutions, including foams, fibers, foils, and aerogels. We… Read more »

Power electronics thermal limits and how to not exceed them

To someone who isn’t involved in power electronics design, it might seem unreal that the amount of power a component can handle depends more on how effectively waste heat can be removed from it than it does on the specific electrical ratings. Sure, the voltage and current ratings are important (especially the voltage rating), but… Read more »

Umicore and Idemitsu Kosan team up to develop cathode material integrated with solid electrolyte

Umicore, a materials technology and recycling company, and oil company Idemitsu Kosan have reached an agreement to co-develop catholyte materials, which integrate cathode active materials (CAM) with solid electrolytes, for all-solid-state battery applications. Since Umicore began work on CAMs for solid-state batteries in 2017, it has established some patents in the area. “Based on more… Read more »

All 50 states, DC and Puerto Rico have submitted plans for national EV charging network

The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program, part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) requires each state and territory to submit an EV Infrastructure Deployment Plan (EVIDP) in order to qualify for its share of the first round of the $5 billion of infrastructure formula funding (IFF) that will be made available over 5… Read more »
