Over the past 20 years, the energy storage capacity of lithium ion technology has been increasingly exhausted. A new technology could allow a significant leap in the direction of more compact batteries with an even greater range, the solid-state electrolyte battery.
Several groups at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are working on this new technology, from basic electrochemical research to analytics with the help of neutrons as well as production technology. A documentary from SAT.1 presents the research work.
The documentary is available in the SAT.1 Bayern media library:
Technik der Zukunft? Neue Batterie für E-Mobilität - "Technology of the future? New battery for e-mobility" - Documentation (in German), available in the media library of SAT.1 Bavaria (duration approx. 25 min)
The availability of content in media libraries may be limited.
