Fixing a hidden flaw could unlock better batteries for electric vehicles

Solid-state batteries could play a key role in electric vehicles, promising faster charging, greater range and longer lifespan than conventional lithium-ion batteries. But current manufacturing and materials processing techniques leave solid-state batteries prone to failure. Now, researchers have uncovered a hidden flaw behind the failures. The next step is to design materials and techniques that account for these flaws and produce next-generation batteries.
