Glasses mixed with ions like alkali borate glasses or alkali* silicate glasses have high technological potentials for electrochemical devices such as solid-oxide fuel cells, solid-state batteries or chemical sensors. In the contrast to conventional liquid lithium-ion-batteries, these materials have a low self-discharge, a fast load capacity, a high stability, a high energy density and a reasonable and easy producibility.
The biggest deficit, however, is the low ionic conductivity, which corresponds to a low power density and is currently a hindrance for economic and industrial applications. Hence the full knowledge of structural properties and diffusion processes is an essential requirement of manufacturing ionic glasses with a maximum of power.
