Professor Arumugam Manthiram - University of Texas Austin

UT AUSTIN (Tutorial A): Delineating the Intricacies of the Interfacial Chemistry of High-Nickel Cathodes in Lithium-Based Batteries

High-nickel layered oxide cathodes with low or no cobalt offer high energy density, but suffer from complex interfacial instability in contact with electrolyte, resulting in shorter lifespan. This presentation will focus first on delineating the intricacies of the interfacial chemistry of high-nickel cathodes in both lithium-ion and lithium-metal batteries by employing a suite of advanced […]

Associate Professor Iryna Zenyuk - University of California Irvine

UC IRVINE (Tutorial B): Operando Studies of Li-Metal Anodes for Solid-State Batteries – Lessons Learned and Future Opportunities

In this tutorial the speaker will present an overview of current state-of-the-art all solid state batteries (ASSBs) featuring various materials as separators (polymer, sulfide, oxides and halides). Then their integration with Li-metal anodes or in anode-free configuration will be presented. Operando x-ray studies performed in the speaker’s group and other groups will be showcased to […]

Kent Griffith - Northwestern University

NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY (Tutorial D): Degradation Mechanisms and Mediation Strategies Thereof in Nickel-Rich Lithium-Ion Battery Cathodes

Nickel-rich lithium-ion battery cathode materials, including NMC and NCA, can provide high energy density while minimizing the use of cobalt. However, as the nickel content increases, material degradation can be severe, limiting the usable cycle life. In this talk, we will go through the degradation mechanisms affecting nickel-rich cathodes including microcracking, transition metal dissolution, parasitic […]
