Abstract:
An intrinsic challenge of Li-ion batteries is the instability of electrolytes against anode materials. For anodes with a favorably low operating potential, a solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI) formed during initial cycles provides stability, traded off for capacity consumption. The SEI is mainly determined by the anode material, electrolyte composition, and formation conditions. Its properties are typically adjusted by changing the liquid electrolyte's composition. Artificial SEIs (Art-SEIs) offer much more freedom to address and tune specific properties, such as chemical composition, impedance, thickness, and elasticity. Art-SEIs for intercalation, alloying, conversion and Li metal anodes have to fulfil varying requirements. In all cases, sufficient transport properties for Li-ions and (electro-)chemical stability must be guaranteed. Several approaches for Art-SEIs preparation have been reported: from simple casting and coating techniques to elaborated Phys-Chem modifications and deposition processes. This review critically reports on the promising approaches for Art-SEIs formation on different type of anode materials, focusing on methodological aspects. The specific requirements for each approach and material class, as well as the most effective strategies for Art-SEI coating, are discussed and a roadmap for further developments towards next-generation stable anodes are provided.

Abstract:
In article number 2100287, Changzhou Yuan and co-workers develop 1D Mo-doped Na3V2(PO4)3 nanowires in situ coated with carbon nano-shell ([email protected] NWs) toward next-generation Na-ion batteries and hybrid Li/Na-ion batteries as a high-rate cathode. Benefiting from their unique structural/compositional merits, the [email protected] NWs demonstrate rapid electronic/ionic transport and rigid structural tolerance within operating temperatures from −25 to 55 °C.

Abstract:
In article number 2003921, Zhuoqing Yang, Chi Zhang, Zhong Lin Wang and co-workers theoretically and experimentally verify the output characteristics of triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) based on Maxwell's equations, which include both polarization and magnetization effects. For the first time, the discovered output characteristics of TENGs are precisely derived from the working principle of TENGs, simultaneously, a completed and unified theoretical system is constructed for TENGs.

Abstract:
In the quest for a sustainable society, energy storage technology is destined to play a central role in the future energy landscape. Breakthroughs in materials and methods involving sustainable resources are crucial to protect humankind from the most serious consequences of climate change. Rechargeable batteries of all forms will be required to follow the path. Elements that are eligible to harmonically contribute to the development of a sustainable ecosystem and fulfil the demands of high energy density batteries include Na, K, Ca, Mg, Zn, and Al. Numerous research efforts are underway to explore new battery chemistries based on these elements and, depending on the field of application, different elements inherit different advantages and challenges. Full sustainability implies that the environmental friendliness of these systems must be characterized by a “cradle-to-grave” approach. In this context, the pursuit of global environmental and economical sustainability from mass production, raw materials, and technical challenges is discussed herein for the most recent battery concepts based on monovalent and multivalent metal anodes. A perspective on strategies and opportunities particularly around the development of all-solid-state system configurations is provided, and the most important obstacles to overcome in search of a more sustainable future for electrochemical energy storage are addressed.

Abstract:
Transparent conductive electrodes (TCEs) are key components of photovoltaic devices. Being transparent, they allow light to enter the device, and being conductive, they allow the photocurrent generated to be drawn into the outer electric circuit. Ideally, TCEs exhibit maximum light transmission and conductivity at the same time. However, both properties have to be balanced. Depending on the photovoltaic material system, the selection of the most suitable TCE is crucial and is assessed by so-called figures-of-merit (FOM). Here, a novel and exact FOM that explicitly considers the impact on photovoltaic performance is proposed. This novel FOM exhibits several useful attributes, among them: i) proportionality to the potential power output of the photovoltaic device, ii) normalization with regard to the theoretically ultimately attainable photovoltaic performance and, thus, it provides above all iii) meaningful guidance for the development of advanced TCEs. Based on the exact FOM, the transition sheet resistance is defined as the parameter, which separates the so-far unidentified two regimes of TCE operation: transmittance versus conductance limited. An overview of realized state-of-the-art semitransparent electrodes is reassessed and compared herein. Furthermore, the TCE requirements for various photovoltaic material systems are assessed in dependence on the spectral range of their operation.
