Short Course #4
Lithium Ion Battery Materials
Martin Winter and Ying Shirley Meng, Instructors

This course will cover the following:

  • a general introduction into lithium and lithium ion batteries;
  • anodes and interface considerations;
  • electrolytes;
  • cathodes, interface considerations, computational approach;
  • cathode vs. anode interactions, inactive components; and
  • conclusions and feedback.


About the Instructors

Martin Winter is Professor of Applied Inorganic Chemistry and Electrochemistry at Graz University of Technology in Austria. He has more than 15 years of experience in lithium ion battery materials, in particular on anodes, electrolytes, and interfaces. He has published more than 500 publications and presentations (including 30 patents). Dr. Winter’s work in the field has been recognized with numerous national and international awards, he is the member of several scientific and editorials boards, and he is an Associate Editor of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society.

Ying Shirley Meng is a research associate in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her research focuses on the direct integration of the experimental techniques with computation modeling methods for rational materials characterization and design, a unique approach in the battery research field. Dr. Meng won the Graduate Student Award (Materials Research Society) for her dissertation work on lithium battery cathode materials. Recently, she has contributed significantly to the development of high energy high power cathode materials; the work has been published in Science (2006).
