Jan Crawford, CBS National News correspondent, interviewed UMERC Director Eric Wachsman and toured the laboratory to learn more about innovative battery technology under development. Dr. Wachsman and his team of researchers are creating a solid-state lithium-ion battery with a major advantage: they are not flammable. The novel electrolyte used in these batteries cannot catch fire like today’s organic-based electrolytes that are increasingly responsible for electronics fires, yet these solid-state batteries are as efficient as the batteries on the market today while having even higher demonstrated energy density and the potential for even longer life.
