All-Solid-State Lithium Ion Thin Film Micro Battery

All-solid-state thin-film lithium-ion batteries are deemed promising replacements for liquid electrolyte-based Li-ion batteries owing to their superior lifecycle, compact structure, high energy and power densities with an extremely low self-discharge rate. However, the state-of-art all-solid-state Li-ion batteries mainly use thermal-evaporated lithium metal as anode, which considerably undermines their cost-effectiveness and also raises safety concerns of Li explosion. With our new technology, a high upper cut-off voltage of 4.55 V all-solid-state Li-ion full cell batteries has been successfully developed for the first time using sputter-deposition technique.
