In this talk, manufacturing solutions such as production tools, methods and processes for all-solid-state thin-film lithium secondary batteries will be introduced. All-solid-state thin-film batteries, which are produced by thin-film deposition technology based on a vacuum technology, have special advantages, that is, safe, thin and flexible, thanks to their unique thin-film shape. By combination with energy harvesting, wireless communication and sensing devices, they can be employed in emerging small electronic devices suitable for next generation smart society.
