Scientists successfully demonstrated a technique to heal dendrites that formed in a solid electrolyte (SE), resolving an issue that can hamper the performance high energy-density, solid-state batteries. Lithium metal anodes in batteries tend to form dendrites — tree-like metallic microstructures that can appear during charging, causing capacity loss and in some cases, a short circuit.
