Delivering the next generation of energetic materials, components, batteries and systems to the world.
LiRAP™This patented new electrolyte material (Lithium ion Rich Anti-Perovskite or LiRAP™) lends itself specifically to high performance storage architectures designed around new age, well matched, rate limited anodes and cathodes coated by an ultra-thin layer of PATHION electrolyte.
In terms of safety, LiRAP (a solid) prevents swelling, out-gassing, and the growth of dendrites between cathodes and anodes. These three conditions represent the primary root-cause failure modes of today’s liquid electrolyte-based Lithium Ion batteries. Such liquids are prone to overheating and combustion – properties that limit the use of the most promising Lithium Ion and other new battery chemistries.
Higher Ionic Conductivity
LiRAP provides improvement in energy density and power as a function of its higher ionic conductivity. The more conductive the electrolyte, the greater the number of ions that cross over to create charge. Prototyping of LiRAP has yielded results at 10¯3 siemens – approximately two orders of magnitude better than today’s competing solid state electrolytes.
