On November 6-7, the Deputy Director for innovation of the ISSP UL Andris Anspoks attended the 6th Lithium-Sulfur-Batteries Workshop at Fraunhofer IWS in Dresden, Germany.
Lithium-sulfur batteries are the most promising choice for future energy storage systems. Lithium metal anodes are decisive components as they determine cycling stability and specific energy, also in solid state batteries. A topical session will address lithium metal processing, protective coatings and new lithium metal electrode architectures. Novel materials such as nanostructured carbon/sulfur composite cathodes, solid electrolytes and alloy-based anodes are crucial to significantly enhance the cell performance.
