Problem Addressed

Li metal is highly reactive and a stable solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) often forms on the Li surface, which allows Li deposition to occur in dendritic morphologies that can short-circuit the battery. This technology prevents dendritic growth through a membrane fabricated through a layer-by-layer (LBL) deposition process that allows the incorporation of a polymer support to provide controlled permeability and selective ion transport.
