Li-metal all-solid-state batteries (ASSBs) have been considered as a most promising next generation battery with their inflammability and enhanced energy density relative to the state-of-the-art Li-ion batteries. A key to success of high-performance ASSBs is to develop solid-state electrolytes (SSEs) that have high ionic conductivity, high stability, low interface resistance, etc. In this project, the ceramic/polymer hybrid SSEs are investigated to address intrinsic limitations of ceramic SSEs such as poor mechanical properties and high electrode/electrolyte interface resistance. Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is also employed for the development of the ASSB system architecture, physical and chemical simulations, and analysis, for the optimization of design and decision-making processes towards manufacturing and recycling.
