ECS San Diego Student Chapter & ECS San Francisco Section Host “An Odyssey Through the Uncharted Waters of Post Lithium-Ion Batteries”Posted on November 15, 2023 by Jennifer Tarantino
Join the ECS San Diego Student Chapter and the ECS San Francisco Section for Dr. John Muldoon’s November 17, 2023, presentation, “An Odyssey Through the Uncharted Waters of Post Lithium-Ion Batteries.”
Advanced energy storage technologies such as lithium-ion batteries have enabled the development of ubiquitous portable electronic devices and are critical to the development and widespread adoption of practical electric vehicles. While lithium-ion batteries represent the most advanced energy storage technology currently available commercially, the desire for significant improvement in energy density and cost has led to a strong interest in so-called “beyond lithium-ion” batteries such as sodium, lithium-air, lithium-sulfur, multivalent batteries, and solid-state batteries. In this talk, I guide you on an odyssey toward post li-ion batteries. We travel through the peaks and valleys of multivalent, lithium-sulfur, and all-solid-state batteries. (more…)
