All-solid-state batteries (including lithium- and sodium-ion batteries) are considered to be a next-generation energy storage technology with the possibility of outperforming today’s state-of-the-art Li-ion batteries based on liquid organic electrolytes in terms of energy and power density. To achieve this goal, the development of specific cathode active materials as well as highly conducting and electrochemically stable solid electrolytes is required. Moreover, a thorough understanding of interfacial degradation processes occurring at the electrode/electrolyte interfaces is of prime importance, to guide a targeted development of cell constituents. Contrary to rechargeable Li (and Na) -ion batteries containing liquid electrolytes, no combination of materials has prevailed over others in the case of solid-state batteries. This calls for further exploration of new materials and the development of modification strategies to further improve their performance.
In this Special Issue, we are looking for contributions of:
- Novel solid electrolyte materials for Li- and Na-batteries (but not limited to);
- Hybrid electrolyte material concepts (polymer-based, amorphous glasses, etc.);
- Surface modification strategies for cathode active materials;
- Understanding the muti-scale interplay of electrode and electrolyte materials;
- Electrochemical assessment of solid electrolyte materials in solid-state batteries;
- Favorable (chemo)mechanically cathode active materials;
- Novel scalable synthesis procedures for solid electrolytes.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Batteries is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs).
