High-Energy Density Rechargeable Li-S Batteries: Fundamental Aspects of Electrochemistry and Current Status

CNST Seminar Series

Vladimir P. Oleshko

Materials Science and Engineering, U. of Maryland, College Park and Materials Science and Engineering Division, NIST

Abstract:

In this talk, fundamental aspects of electrochemistry and current status of Li-S battery research will be discussed. Lightweight rechargeable Li-S batteries are regarded as an attractive candidate technology for emerging applications in transportation, portable electronics, communications, cordless power tools, etc. It is expected that Li-S batteries with the specific capacity ~ 6 times higher than for Li-ion technology will be commercially available by 2020-2025. Key challenges of the Li-S batteries to overcome and recently proposed solutions for designing of high-energy density long-life Li-S batteries will be outlined.
