Battery Materials

Batteries are expected to fulfill a large number of criteria to meet performance demands for consumer electronics and electric vehicles. These include high power and high energy density, long life, suitable discharge rate, low cost, and safety.
Our ability to produce lithium ion cells cheaply and rapidly has grown significantly in the last few years. Still, there remains many opportunities to further improve rechargeable battery technology through the use of next-generation materials.
Lithium-ion Battery Technology

In lithium-ion batteries, lithium ions move from the negative electrode through an electrolyte to the positive electrode during discharge. The process is reversed when charging. Li ion batteries typically use lithium as the material at the positive electrode, and graphite at the negative electrode.

The lithium-ion battery presents clear fundamental technology advantages when compared to alternative cell chemistries like lead acid. Decades of research have led its development into the efficient storage technology that it is today. Nevertheless, battery material R&D continues to push the boundaries of cost, energy density, discharge rate, cycle life, and safety.

Lithium-ion Battery Advantages

Lithium-ion technology is currently the best-performing technology for battery energy storage. As a result, li-ion batteries are widely used in small electronics (smartphones, laptops, drones) and electric vehicles.

  • Very high energy density, with potential for even greater density in the future.
  • Prolonged charging of new batteries not required.
  • Low discharge rate equivalent to half that of nickel batteries.
  • Low maintenance requirements – period discharge not required.
  • Can be configured to provide very high current to applications such as power tools.
