TUT2: MATERIALS SELECTION AND DESIGN FOR BATTERIES WITH HIGH ENERGY DENSITY, ULTRALONG CYCLE LIFE AND EXCELLENT SAFETY
Monday, March 25 | 8:00-10:00 am
ABOUT THIS TUTORIAL:
This tutorial gives an overview on the materials selection and design in order to increase the energy density of batteries, extend the cycle life and enhance the safety significantly. It targets the application from portable electronics, electric vehicles to grid-scale storage.
TOPICS TO BE COVERED:
- Si, Li metal, P Anodes and S Cathodes for high energy batteries, which offers 7-10 times higher lithium ion storage capacities
- Low cost Prussion-blue based materials, Li metal-polysulfide semiflow and Mn-H batteries for grid-scale storage
- Ideas to enhance battery safety.
