The processes that occur in batteries are complex, spanning a wide range of time and length scale. The team of experimentalists and theorists will make the use of, and develop new methodologies to determine how model compound electrodes function in real time, as batteries are cycled.
- Close the gap between the theoretical and practical energy density for intercalation
- Attain reversible multi-electron transfer in a cathode material using lithium.
- Understand performance limiting transport in positive electrode structures from the local through the meso to the macroscale.
- Enable new chemistries involving electrode systems that were previously considered intractable for use in batteries.
