Renewable energy sources require a shift from using fossil fuels. However, concerns regarding the intermittent production of energy sources such as photovoltaic or wind do not provide enough for the demand. The significance of storing green energy is essential in the shift from the use of non-renewable energy sources.
Researches have been performed in the search for an all-solid-state battery. UCLouvain scientists discovered that LiTi2(PS4)3, or LTPS has the highest lithium diffusion coefficient (a direct measure of lithium mobility) measured in a solid. The unique crystal structure results to this lithium mobility. Results of the study were published in Chem.
