Battery research at Aalen University: In a so-called „Glovebox“ (or Glove Chamber), electrodes are assembled into battery cells after processing with a laser.

Mo, 12. August 2019 Long wait times at the loading station should, in the near future, be a thing of the past. The Federally funded project „structur.e“ would like to contribute to that and has set itself a goal: to develop new lithium-ion batteries with improved fast-charging capabilities for electric vehicles. With a group of renowned cooperating partners of economy and science, completely new solution approaches should be pursued. Today, there are already the first promising findings that back this potential.
