Samsung’s progress towards solid-state battery technology

Researchers from the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) and the Samsung R&D Institute Japan (SRJ) presented a study on high-performance, long-lasting all-solid-state batteries to Nature Energy

ll-solid-state batteries support greater energy density, which opens the door for larger capacities, and utilize solid electrolytes, which are demonstrably safer

Samsung’s researchers proposed utilizing a silver-carbon (Ag-C) composite layer as the anode

The ultrathin Ag-C nanocomposite layer allowed the team to reduce anode thickness and increase energy density up to 900Wh/L

The prototype pouch cell that the team developed would enable an EV to travel up to 800km on a single charge, and features a cycle life of over 1,000 charges

Samsung SDI accelerated its schedule to introduce solid-state batteries at scale

Samsung SDI began building a pilot line as ‘S-Line’ at its research and development centre in Suwon in March

The company expects to produce its first solid-state cells from early 2023

Samsung Electro-Mechanics is researching, developing, and manufacturing oxide solid-state batteries for IT equipment

Affiliate Samsung SDI plans to focus on ceramic sulfide solid-state batteries for smartphones
