Batteries and Solid Electrolyte Materials


Battery is an electric device comprises of one or more electrochemical cells uses external electric connections to power the electrical devices such as smartphones, flashlights and electric cars. There are two types of batteries, primary and secondary. The former type of batteries are used once and discarded, while the later type can be discharged and recharged several times. Batteries convert chemical energy directly to electrical energy that consists of some number of voltaic cells. The voltage established across a cell's terminals is subject to the energy release of the chemical reactions of its electrodes and electrolyte. Solid-state battery was invented in 2017 by John Goodenough where both the elctrodes and electrolyte are in solid state. Solid electrolytes also termed as superionics are materials that reveals high values of ionic conductivity and is widely studied materials for solid state batteries, gas sensors, fuel cells, batteries and electrochromic devices. Solid electrolytes are the potential materials to replace organic electrolytes that are flammable and toxic.This new type of battery is “three times energy denser”, safer, faster charging and used for longer lasting rechargeable batteries such as mobile devices, stationary energy storage and electric vehicles. Photovoltaic (PV) cells are devices that engross light and convert directly into electricity (e.g., solar cell). PV cell is categorized into three main types inorganic, organic and photoelectrochemical. Inorganic PV cells are commercially available as mono-crystalline, multi-crystaline and amorphous. The Industrial batteries market for end-user industry is expected to reach USD 10.84 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.5% between 2016 and 2021. The advancement in the market can be primarily due to the increasing demand from the locomotive sector, development in renewable energy sector, enlarged recycling efficiency of lead-acid and lithium-based industrial batteries, and greater performance of industrial batteries in terms of energy density.
