  • This paper reports that lithium batteries using solid redox polymerization electrodes (SRPEs) maintain the inherent advantages of all-solid-state, thin-film systems while overcoming some of the limitations of using intercalation compounds as positive electrode. Laboratory Li/PEO/SRPE cells have demonstrated higher power capability, energy density, and capacity utilization than analogous Li/PEO/TiS{sub 2} cells. One of the Li/PEO/SRPE cells has achieved 350 cycles from 50 to 93{degrees} C with a sustained energy density of 160 Wh/kg (190 Wh/1, power density of 120 W/kg (140 W/1), and 40-75% capacity utilization of the polymerization electrode. At 100{degrees}C, power densities of over 1800 W/kg (2200 W/1)more » at energy densities of 140 Wh/kg (170 Wh/1) have been achieved with up to 96% utilization of cathode capacity. At ambient temperatures (35{degrees} C), the cells can be discharged at a current density of 250 {mu}a/cm{sup 2}, achieving a film capacity of 0.5 C/cm{sup 2}.« less
  • LiNi{sub 0.5}Mn{sub 1.5}O{sub 4} is a potential cathode material for 5 V batteries. This material was prepared by the solid-state redox method using nitrate and acetate based reactants. The precursor material was obtained when the mixture reactants was heated at 500 deg. C for 10 hours and calcined at different temperatures in the range between 650 and 950 deg. C for 12 hours. The structures of the synthesized materials were verified with X- ray diffraction (XRD) measurement and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The charge-discharge technique was determined using Solartron 1470. As calcination temperature increases, the well-ordered crystal growth oriented tomore » [1 1 1] direction shows a clear octahedral morphology, which is the characteristic of the typical cubic spinel. The Li/LiNi{sub 0.5}Mn{sub 1.5}O{sub 4} prepared from acetate based reactants calcined at 750 deg. C for 12 h delivered the discharge capacity of 140 mAh/g.« less
  • Lithium sulfur (Li-S) redox flow battery (RFB) is a promising candidate for high energy large-scale energy storage application due to good solubility of long-chain polysulfide species and low cost of sulfur. In this report, recent progress and new concepts for Li-S redox flow batteries are discussed with an emphasis on the fundamental understanding and control of lithium polysulfide chemistry to enable the development of liquid phase Li-S redox flow prototype cells. These differ significantly from conventional static Li-S batteries targeting for vehicle electrification. A high solubility of the different lithium polysulfides generated at different depths of discharge and states ofmore » charge is required for a flow battery in order to take full advantage of the multiple electron transitions between elemental sulfur and Li2S. A new DMSO-based electrolyte is proposed for Li-S redox flow batteries, which not only enables the high solubility of lithium polysulfide species, especially for the short-chain species, but also results in excellent cycling with a high Coulombic efficiency. The challenges and opportunities for the Li-S redox flow concept have also been discussed in depth.« less
