ESR 15: MLD-based conformal deposition of dual conductor coatings for all-solid state batteries (Work Package 5)

Short description of the project

Objectives: (1) Development of MLD processes and post-deposition treatment of dual conductor coatings. Focus will be on tuning the composition of the material, varying the length and type of the organic fragments in the hybrid material, post-deposition annealing, analysis of the material porosity and pore size distribution and their effects on the elasticity of the fabricated coatings. (2) Electrochemical characterization of charging rates and capacity of electrode/dual conductor coatings on thin film and powder-based battery electrodes.

Host institute: IMEC
