Title: MICROSTRUCTURED ION-CONDUCTING COMPOSITES AND USES THEREOF
Abstract:
A composite membrane with nanostructured inorganic and organic phases is applied as an ion-selective layer to improve processability, prevent dendrite shorting, and increase power output of lithium-metal anodes through better Li-ion conductivity. Nanoconfinement, as opposed to macroscale confinement, is known to dramatically alter the properties of bulk materials. Control over a ceramic's size, shape, and properties is achieved with polymer templates. This is a new composition of matter and unique approach to composite membrane design.
