New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)
As part of a NEDO project, a research group including Kyoto University successfully revealed the relationship between the glassy structure and the ion conductivity at the atomic and electronic level of sulfide glass electrolyte that has a higher lithium ion conductivity than oxide glass.
By leveraging the world-class advanced analysis technologies, NEDO aims to make significant breakthroughs in the development of next generation lithium ion battery materials and create innovative battery technologies.
The research results were published on February 19th in “Scientific Reports”, an online magazine of scientific research published by Nature Publishing Group of the UK.
