Presently, there is an intense worldwide effort toward developing durable lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) with high energy and power densities for a wide range of applications, including electric and hybrid vehicles.
In a traditional LIB, the battery’s electrodes become damaged over time. After repeated charge-and-discharge cycles, the battery will begin to degrade and lose its ability to hold a charge. Kentucky NSF EPSCoR’s Electrochemical Energy Storage team is exploring innovative approaches to develop self-healing electrodes that will extend the life cycle of LIBs.
