A solid-state battery breakthrough could solve the biggest shortcoming of this potentially world-changing technology

Harvard researchers created a new type solid state battery using solid electrodes and a solid electrolyte, rather than the liquid or polymer gel electrolytes in conventional lithium-ion or lithium-polymer batteries that power most current devices.

Solid-state batteries face many challenges that hinder their widespread use, such as flammability, limited voltage, poor performance, and structural flaws that have hindered their progress in the past.
