A team of researchers from Brown University has discovered a way of using graphene to double the toughness of a ceramic material used to make solid-state lithium-ion batteries. 

The method has the potential to bring the benefits of solid-state batteries, which replace the liquid electrolytes in current batteries, to the mass market.

In recent weeks we've seen news about sodium-ion batteries and a new quantum phase battery for quantum computing. Now, a new strategy for creating a safer and tougher solid-state lithium-ion batteries provides another innovation in the rapidly growing world of electronic devices, vehicles, and battery components.

"There's huge interest in replacing the liquid electrolytes in current batteries with ceramic materials because they're safer and can provide higher energy density," Christos Athanasiou, a postdoctoral researcher in Brown's School of Engineering and lead author of the research, explained in a press release.
