Large-scale deployment of lithium metal anode in practical batteries still requires a scientific breakthrough in solving major challenges of dendrite growth and low plating/stripping efficiency of metallic lithium. To address the issues related to lithium anodes in LMBs, several effective strategies have been developed to stabilize Li anodes, including liquid electrolytes, surface coating, solid-state electrolytes, and porous current collectors. In this presentation, we will present our recent work on the materials design and development for next-generation LMBs by focusing on the in-depth understanding of interphase engineering. More specifically, we will discuss (1) the systematic electrolyte design and (2) the anode construction.
