Chemistry of Hello: Lithium Ion Batteries

Challenges and Opportunities for Personal Electronics Applications

March 10, 2016
Part three of the 2016 Material Science Series

An "M: Made of Circuts

Consumers are demanding an increasing level of functionality from their cell phones.  The energy density of today’s lithium ion batteries can limit the practical functionality of the phone as consumers expect the battery to last a full day. Dee Strand will join us to share how new materials and designs are providing an opportunity to increase the energy density of cells for these applications.

What You Will Learn

  • Basic principles of lithium ion battery (LIB) operation      
  • Performance limitations of today’s LIBs in personal electronics
  • Approaches to improve performance in LIBs
