Slurry Formulation for the Formation of Layers for Solid State Batteries

 

Executive Summary

 

Electric vehicles increase the interest in breakthrough energy-storage technology. One approach is to develop solid-state battery (SSB). A primary challenge in SBBs is the development of new manufacturing techniques for ceramic layers, and the assembly of these layers into new cell architectures. This invention presents a novel slurry formulation for the fabrication of thin ceramic layers for SSB applications.

 

Description of Technology

 

Slurry formulations are known and utilized in ceramics industries such as low temperature co-fired ceramics (LTCC).  However, additional constrains must be considered with electrochemical applications such as SSBs. This invention proposes a novel method of inclusion of the sintering aide: the sintering aide is added as a liquid and is formed in-situ.

 

Key Benefits

  • Novel slurry formulation in the formation of layers

 

Applications

  • Superior solid-state battery (SSB) technology
