Title: Advanced Cathode Material For High Energy Density Lithium-Batteries
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNC05CA78C
Award Amount: $70,000.00
 

Abstract:

Advanced cathode materials having high red-ox potential and high specific capacity offer great promise to the development of high energy density lithium-based batteries. A novel advanced cathode material having higher capacity and operating voltage than conventional CFx cathode is proposed to develop high energy density lithium batteries. The proposed cathode material will be synthesized and characterized using different analytical and electrochemical techniques. Several prismatic design lithium pouch cells will be developed with the proposed cathode material and lithium anode in carbonate-based lithium hexafluorophosphate electrolyte and will be tested to demonstrate the proof-of-concept.
