Abstract
MaxPower's Phase I program will involve development of new cathode materials and new electrolyte solutions to significantly improve gravimetric energy densities and rate capabilities. With these objectives in mind, the following details the approaches MaxPower will take in its Phase I program. To improve gravimetric and volumetric energy densities and rate capabilities, the Phase I program will synthesize and optimize the performance of 5 V (vs. Li/Li+) cathode materials. Nano cathode materials will be developed. To improve capacity retention upon extended cycling of the 5 V cathode materials, MaxPower will develop new electrolyte solutions which are stable to at least 5 V vs. Li/Li+.
