      Featured Abstract:
      Hua Cheng,  PhD, Newcastle University,"Nanoporous Substrate materials for Rechargeable Li-Air Batteries"

      The rechargeable Li-air battery has a key role to play for the storage of renewable energy and in future electric vehicles. But it suffers from cycling fading and low rate capability; cathode materials (including substrate) were identifies as one of main responsible sources. Here we compare several potential cathode substrates with widely used carbon materials based on results from cycling studies and FTIR measurement. Ag and TiC show promising properties

      Recent significant innovations within lithium-ion batteries have propelled the technology into a position in the marketplace far exceeding recent market survey results. Breakthroughs in new battery chemistries, novel electrode and electrolyte materials, system integration for a vast array of mobile and portable applications, from micro medical devices to high-energy/high-power automotive, have paved the roadmap for an emerging market with unlimited potential.

      • New chemistries & materials to increase energy & decrease cost
      • Meeting the EV challenge: cycle life, power & energy, cost and safety
      • Advanced materials for improved electrode & electrolyte performance
      • Application driven lithium ion battery development
      • Advanced technology for greater safety, reliability and performance
      • From novel materials and components to systems design and integration
      • Role of nanotechnology in improving power and energy density

      Featured Abstract:
      Nicholas Willard, University of Maryland, "Mechanisms of catastrophic Battery Failure"

      Battery failure can be generalized into two broad categories, slow progressive degradation and immediate catastrophic failure. To date, most theoretical work has been performed on the former with little work focusing on how to model,predict, or mitigate the onset of catastrophic failure. This presentation will explain the root cause mechanisms that lead to catastrophic failure and will offer solutions on how to better predict and handle this problem

      Widely publicized safety incidents and recalls of lithium-ion batteries have raised legitimate concerns regarding lithium-ion battery safety. Battery Safety 2012is conveniently timed with Lithium Battery Power 2012, and will address these concerns by exploring the following topics:

      • Application specific battery safety issues affecting battery performance
      • Major battery degradation and reliability factors
      • Battery management systems
      • Commercial cells evaluation and failure analysis
      • Advances in testing techniques and protocols
      • High throughput testing, automation and modeling for better safety
      • Standardization and regulatory issues
