Electrochemical Multiphysics Modeling
Standard lithium ion batteries rely on intercalation electrodes, where lithium ions are inserted in a host structure. In this area, the group of electrochemical multiphysics modelling is concentrating its efforts on lithium intercalation batteries and lithium plating.
Conversion reactions save electrode weight and volume and convert more chemical energy by working without a host structure. In this area, the group of electrochemical multiphysics modelling is concentrating its efforts on metal-air as well as metal-sulfur batteries.
All-solid-state cells use a solid electrolyte instead of the conventional liquid electrolytes. Solid electrolytes are non-flammable, resistant to heat, and have a large electrochemical window. This makes solid electrolyte batteries promising candidates for safe, next-generation high-voltage cells of electromobile energy storage systems.
