Lithium-Sulfur battery; a very promising battery technology to outperform today’s low energy density Lithium-ion battery is hindered by electrode solubility issues which results in short cycle life. In this dissertation, it is demonstrated that rethinking of the assembly protocols and introducing multi-functional components to the battery configuration can bring additional functionalities to the device which solves the inherent drawbacks of the Lithium-Sulfur system in a rather unconventional fashion. These studies showed the potential of carbon-based films in boosting the Energy density and life time of the Lithium-Sulfur battery.
