Solid-state thin film batteries represent a breakthrough in energy storage for mobile electronic devices. In addition, thin film energy storage structures provide an opportunity to explore the theoretical limits of various cathode/electrolyte/anode combinations which may illuminate potential materials for large scale batteries for electric vehicles. The course will introduce the concept of solid-state thin film batteries, review currently available deposition techniques and highlight the benefits and limitations of this novel battery. Future directions to improve energy density through alternative materials combinations and 3-dimensional device designs will also be discussed.
