John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino share the prize for their work on rechargeable Li-ion batteries. Lithium-ion batteries (LIB) have revolutionized our lives from communication (mobile phones) to transport (electric cars).
The Nobel Committee observed: “Lithium-ion batteries are used globally to power the portable electronics that we use to communicate, work, study, listen to music and search for knowledge.”
At Malvern Panalytical, we are strongly connected to researchers and the Industry driving the LIB innovation and manufacturing. We have developed specific solutions to gain deeper insight into the functioning of LIB’s by exploring critical parameters from electrodes to an assembled cell that affect the battery performance. More information can be found in the following links:
- Tools for a comprehensive characterization of Li-ion batteries
