Opening Words
of the Program Committee

We are happy to announce the second Bunsen Colloquium on Solid-State Batteries. It will take place from November 23 to 25, 2016 in Frankfurt / Main, Germany – like the first and very successful colloquium held in fall 2014.

Please find all you should know about this important event on our website. We are looking forward to your participation!

Solid-state batteries (SSB) are based exclusively on solid inorganic or solid polymer electrolytes and electrodes. They are often considered as inherently safe and long-term stable, and the interest in SSB has increased quickly during the last two years. While conventional liquid electrolyte-based batteries slowly reach their limits, SSB attract new interest for their expected stability, safety and the intrinsic separator function of solid electrolytes.

It is the goal of this Bunsen colloquium to present the current state of the art and to bring together experts from different fields – ranging from electrochemistry and materials science to solid state physics and engineering. We particularly aim to link scientists from universities and research institutes with researchers from the industry, in order to stimulate an intensive exchange on the theoretical and practical limitations of SSB, and to discuss most recent scientific achievements.


Keynote Speakers:

  • Yuki Katoh
  • Yoon Seok Jung
  • Yifei Mo


Invited Speakers:

  • René Hausbrand, TU Darmstadt
  • Stefano Passerini, Helmholtz-Institut Ulm
  • Bernhard Roling, Philipps-Universität Marburg
  • Frank Tietz, Forschungszentrum Jülich
  • Wolfgang Zeier, Justus-Liebig Universität Gießen
Please note: We recommend to register early, as the conference experiences strong interest, so we might have to close registration before November 16th already!

We invite interested academic and industrial researchers to participate in the congress and to contribute to the program with an oral presentation or a poster presentation on the following subjects (not exclusive):

  • Materials for SSB
  • Thermodynamic and kinetic considerations, mechanical effects
  • Interface studies in SSB and SSB components
  • SSB cell concepts: thin film and bulk (“thick film”) SSB
  • Advanced characterization
  • Industrial processing of SSB
  • Theory and modelling of processes in SSB
