Researchers Increase Energy Density of Lithium Storage Materials

Optimized Storage Principle and New Material Increase Lithium Storage Density in Batteries

(March 16, 2015)  An interdisciplinary team of researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and KIT-founded Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) pushes the further development of lithium ion batteries: The researchers developed a new cathode material based on a new storage principle, as a result of which energy storage densities can be increased beyond those of systems known so far. The researchers now present the new material in the journal “Advanced Energy Materials”.
