Abstract :

Lithium ion batteries are widely used in many portable applications and are the most promising energy storage systems for future mobility and stationary applications. Worldwide, extensive research efforts focus on the development of high performance, low cost and more sustainable materials for advanced lithium ion batteries. In this presentation, we describe various strategies to increase the energy density of lithium ion batteries by combining high voltage and high capacity cathode materials as nickel rich layered oxides or high voltage spinel type materials with silicon/carbon composites. An alternative approach is the development of cobalt free cathode materials. Co-free, Li-rich Li1+xNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (0

Biography :

Margret Wohlfahrt-Mehrens is the Head of the Accumulators Materials Research Department (ECM) at ZSW in Ulm, and Head of Materials II (Composite Materials) at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm for Electrochemical Storage (HIU). Her research focuses on new materials for Li-ion, Li-S, metal-air and Na-ion batteries, and process development for electrode and cell production in close collaboration with several industrial companies. Her projects are part of a broad network including large international industrial companies, research organizations and universities. She coordinates the German battery competence center Li-EcoSafe, is member of the board of directors of HIU and member of executive board of the competence network Li-ion batteries (KLIB).
