The development of environmentally friendly, sustainable energy production schemes is one of the most important transnational challenges in order to reduce greenhouse emissions and become climate-neutral. The realization of new sustainable solid-state batteries is one of the routes fostered by the long-term European research initiative Batteries 2030+ to achieve the Green Deal.  

Improving Lithium ion metal batteries (LIB/LMB) technology to manufacture sustainable all-solid-state batteries (ASSB) for mobile applications with high density and better capacity retention over cycling is one of the explored possibilities. In order to reach this goal, a better understanding of the transfer mechanisms and reactivity at the interface is required. These processes are intimately linked to the dynamic evolution of the electronic, mechanical, structural and morphological properties at the interfaces. The ultimate understanding relies on the development of new characterization protocols aiming a full description of the interfacial processes across multiple length and time scales: electronic and ionic charge transfer, migration and diffusion properties and interphases formation.

In this presentation, the new possibilities offered at the European XFEL to contribute to the understanding of the LIB/LMB interface properties will be outlined.
