  • Indian researchers have developed a thermally stable solid electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries for energy storage that promise application for a wide range of temperatures from 30-500 degrees Celsius.
  • Energy generation and storage is the need of the hour, and worldwide efforts are being invested for developing cost-effective, efficient options.
  • There are several scientific and technical limitations in the present technology, for example, dependence of liquid electrolytes and narrow range of operating temperatures.
  • The team has used DST FIST-supported High-temperature X-ray diffraction (HTXRD) facility Rigaku SmartLab, particularly useful for the thermal stability assessment of novel solid electrolytes.
  • The FIST programme (Funds for S&T) was launched in the year 2000 to strengthen S&T infrastructure with adequate funding and associated flexibility.
