Computational Studies on Alternative Materials for Lithium-Ion Batteries

Who (supervisor): Jianjun Yang (John Tse)
Venue: PEGASUS Student Summer Seminar, Aug 16, 2012.
Abstract: Lithium ion batteries are widely used in portable electronics because of their high energy density and low weight, and they are currently intensively investigated for more demanding applications such as electrical vehicles and for the stationary power backup systems. To improve its performance, computational modeling has become an essential component in design of new battery materials in addition to the physical work in laboratories. This talk will outline the major challenges of the current Li-ion batteries and summarize several successful computations on the alternative materials.  My own research work on the Li-ion battery materials will be introduced at the end.
