Solid-state battery: New material class with excellent ion conductivity

A research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has discovered a material class with above-average conductivity. This is a decisive step forward in the development of high-performance solid-state batteries. Investigations conducted at the Research Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) made an essential contribution to the discovery.

Founding father of FRM II deceased: In mourning for Wolfgang Gläser

He was the successor of Heinz Maier-Leibnitz and contributed significantly to the fact that the most modern neutron source in the world is located in Garching. Recently, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Gläser has passed away at the age of 89.

Neutron beam for better batteries

With new insights into the interior of lithium-ion batteries, a team of scientists led by Dr Anatoliy Senyshyn and Dominik Petz has succeeded in taking another step towards longer-lasting batteries. Neutron scattering at MLZ’s STRESS-SPEC instrument and further measurements showed a correlation between higher temperature development of the battery and its age.
