3D Printing of Batteries: Fiction or Reality?

alexis maurel

Motivated by the request to build flexible, wearable and customizable batteries of any shape while maximizing the energy storage and electrochemical performances, additive manufacturing, also called 3D printing, appears as a cutting-edge revolutionary discipline.

Battery components such as electrodes, separator, electrolyte, current collectors and casing can be tailored with any shape, therefore allowing the future direct incorporation of batteries and all electronics within the final three-dimensional object.
