Scientists at the Institute for Electrical Energy Storage Technology – EES report on their results of various electrically cross-linked, physicochemical-thermal simulations with variable system terminal in their last publication in the Journal of the Electrochemical Society. Within interconnected battery modules or systems, an inhomogeneous current distribution between parallel-connected cells is…

In the publication published in Journal "Chemistry of Materials" of the Chair of Inorganic Chemistry with Focus on Novel Materials as well as the Chair of Technical Electrochemistry in collaboration with the University of Augsburg report the scientist about their recent progress on the modification and synthesis of Lithium Phosphidotetrelates as a novel class of fast lithium ion conductors. The…

Latest publications of Chair of Technical Electrochemistry report about several novel surface treatments to enhance the electrochemical performance and robustness of lithium and manganese-rich cathode materials for application in lithium ion batteries. SO3 Treatment of Lithium- and Manganese-Rich NCMs for Li-Ion Batteries: Enhanced Robustness towards Humid Ambient Air and Improved Full-Cell…

Munich-based battery researcher and founder Dr. Peter Keil receives the Bavarian Energy Award 2020 in the category "Energy Research - Promoting Young Scientists". He is receiving the prize for his doctoral thesis on the aging of lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles, which he wrote as a scientist at the Chair for Electrical Energy Storage Technology (EES).

Modelling of the Calendering Process of NMC-622 Cathodes in Battery Production Analyzing Machine/ Material–Process–Structure Correlations David Schreiner,* Maximilian Oguntke, Till Günther, and Gunther Reinhart / Energy Technology 7.11 (2019): 1900840, DOI

In the recent publication "Li-ion half-cells studied operando during cycling by small-angle neutron scattering" a Li-ion half-cell with a graphite electrode is cycled against a metallic lithium counter-electrode using small-angle neutron scattering.

The recently published paper "Analysis and modeling of cycle aging of a commercial LiFePO4/graphite cell" by Dr. Maik Naumann and co-authors deals with the cyclic aging of commercial LFP graphite cells and its modeling.   Based on a large-scale cycling experiment, the most important influencing parameters for aging were identified and transferred into a semi-empirical model. This model was…

The 8th Battery Forum took place in Berlin from 22 to 24 January 2020, organized by the Competence Network Lithium-Ion Batteries (KLiB) with the support of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). On the first day of the event, invited speakers from industry, science and politics looked at the topic of batteries in Germany from different perspectives. On the following two days,…

We sincerely congratulate Prof. Gasteiger! This makes Prof. Hubert A. Gasteiger one of the most respected researchers in the field of electrochemistry.
