Symposium J: Materials Aspects of Advanced Lithium Batteries

Materials Aspects of Advanced Lithium Batteries

This symposium will cover a wide range of materials and processes for advanced lithium batteries. The symposium on advanced lithium batteries may include, but will not be limited to: novel synthesis, real-time characterization and electrochemical performances of electrode materials, electrolytes, and new methods of electrode and cell fabrication techniques. The emphasis will be on new approaches for developing functional materials for advanced lithium batteries, and in-situ characterization of battery components during charge-discharge. The focus areas on cathode materials are: 1-D tunnel, 2-D layered, 3-D polyanions (transition metal phosphates and silicates), oxides, conversion materials, composite materials, and electronic conductive polymers. The anode area may cover: carbonaceous and graphitic particulates and nanofibers, lithium-alloying systems, conversion systems (oxides, nitrides, phosphides, and hydrides), and displacement materials. The electrolyte session may cover highly conductive multiblend solvent-based systems, gels, polymers, superionics, and recent developments in ionic liquids, as well as chemistry of SEI formation on electrodes, role and mechanism of electrolyte additives, and shuttle-redox couples. Fundamentals of diffusion processes in solids and liquids, and phenomena to enhance diffusion of ions, polarons, solitons, and plasmon, are also part of this symposium. The real-time charac-terization techniques may include, but will not be limited to, in-situ x-ray electron microscopy, vibrational spectroscopy (IR-Raman-EELS), magnetic measurements, NMR, ESR, thermal analysis, acoustic emission, x-ray and neutron scattering, and other novel electrochemical techniques.

  • Lithium battery materials
  • Intercalation compounds
