Chalmers University of Technology

HQ Country
The Chalmers University of Technology is a Swedish university located in Gothenburg that focuses on research and education in technology, natural science, architecture, maritime and other management areas. It was founded in 1829 following a donation by William Chalmers, the director of the Swedish East India Company. He donated part of his fortune for the establishment of an "industrial school". Chalmers was run as a private institution until 1937, when the institute became a state-owned university. In 1994, the school was incorporated under the control of the Swedish Government. Todays, the University includes 13 departments, 8 Areas of Advances and 6 National Competence Centers.

A Spreadable Way to Stabilise Solid State Batteries

Solid state batteries are of great interest to the electric vehicle industry. Scientists now present a new way of taking this promising concept closer to large-scale application. An interlayer, made of a spreadable, 'butter-like' material helps improve the current density tenfold, while also increasing performance and safety.​​​​​​​​
