Presentation Summary

All-solid-state lithium-sulfur batteries offer a possible solution for enhancing the energy density and safety of the state-of-art lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), due to its high gravimetric energy density, low cost and environmental benignancy. In this talk, we will revise the progress of solid Li-S battery concepts based on both theoretical calculation and experimental results, in hope of shedding some lights on future design of high energy density and safe Li-S batteries.
