Dalhousie team demonstrates stable cycling of anode-less Li-metal cell with liquid electrolytes; possible shift away from solid-state batteries

Green Car Congress

A team at Dalhousie University led by Professor Jeff Dahn, with colleagues from Tesla Canada R&D and the University of Waterloo, has demonstrated stable cycling of an anode-less Li metal cell by using a dual-salt electrolyte (1 M lithium difluoro(oxalate)borate (LiDFOB) and 0.2 The researchers suggest that their results could shift research focus away from solid-state batteries (SSBs) as a rechargeable, high-energy-density solution.
