International Bunsen Discussion Meeting Solid-state Batteries V (SSB V)

International Bunsen Discussion Meeting "Solid-state batteries (SSB V)"

We are happy to announce the fifth International Bunsen Discussion Meeting on Solid-state Batteries "SSB V". This symposium will take place as exclusive in-person event Nov 22 - Nov 24, 2022 in Frankfurt/Germany and follows a very successful series of conferences, which took place in 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2021 (digital).


Solid-state batteries (SSB) are based exclusively on solid inorganic or solid polymer electrolytes and electrodes, but may in the future also include “hybrid” concepts. While conventional liquid electrolyte-based batteries slowly reach their limits, SSB attract growing interest for their expected stability, safety and the intrinsic separator function of solid electrolytes. The latter may enable the use of lithium metal anodes thereby raising hope for a boost in battery capacity. However, despite the promises, many transport-related, interfacial and chemo-mechanical challenges still need to be solved and cell-designs for SSB need to be developed. Moreover, the production of SSB may require completely new concepts for processing. Consequently, these issues are in the focus of the ongoing research.

It is the goal of this International Bunsen Discussion Meeting to present the current state of the art and to bring together experts from different fields – ranging from electrochemistry and materials science to solid-state physics and engineering. We particularly aim to link scientists from universities and research institutes with researchers from the industry, in order to stimulate an intensive exchange on the theoretical and practical limitations of SSB, and to discuss most recent scientific achievements.

We are looking forward to your participation!
