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


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.
