S14: Advanced Materials and Technologies for Rechargeable Batteries


ICACC'12

Preliminary Program – Symposium 14


Improvements in materials design, electrodes architecture, and cell chemistry are required to extend the life, enhance the safety, and lower the cost of rechargeable lithium batteries that are regarded nowadays as the most efficient energy storage systems for portable electronics, medical, military, renewable energy storage, smart grid, and transportation applications. A deeper understanding of the battery materials/property relationship, electrode/electrolyte interface phenomena, and cell failure mechanisms is also needed to face these challenges. The search for advanced high capacity electrode materials and the implementation of the very challenging lithium-air batteries will be necessary to overcome the energy density shortfall in current lithium batteries. Abstracts are solicited on the fundamental and applied aspects of rechargeable lithium batteries, lithium-air batteries, and beyond lithium battery technologies. This symposium will allow for discussion amongst the many groups involved in the development and use on these technologies.
