Abstract
TIAX will develop a novel high energy lithium-ion battery chemistry that is projected to deliver over 270 Wh/kg in 18650-size cells. The phase I program will develop and demonstrate a high voltage cathode / high voltage electrolyte chemical system that enables this cell-level energy to be achieved. Novel cathode materials will be synthesized, physically characterized, and electrochemically cycled to high voltage in novel electrolytes vs. both lithium metal and graphitic carbon anodes. Resulting data will be used to model energy content for scaled-up lithium-ion cells employing the novel chemistry.
