"Eliminating the spark that ignites thermalrunaway in lithium-ion batteries"
Lithium-ion batteries ignite when the electrical energy in the battery is released,creating a spark that drives the batteries into thermal runaway. In this presentation, the use of metallized polymer current collectors will be described which can act as a fuse inside the battery, eliminating the spark that can cause batteries to ignite.
