Understanding fast-ion conduction in solid electrolytes

Scientific meeting

Location

Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ

Overview

Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Dr Benjamin Morgan, Dr Wolfgang Zeier and Professor Serena Corr.

Fast-ion conduction in solid electrolytes

'Superionic' solid electrolytes exhibit exceptional room-temperature ionic conductivities, giving them the potential to enable next-generation battery and fuel-cell technologies. Developing new high-performance electrolytes requires understanding how chemistry can control fast ionic conduction. This meeting will bring together experts on solid electrolytes, superionic conduction, and complex diffusion mechanisms in solids, to discuss the mechanistic origins of fast-ion conduction in solid electrolytes.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
