Challenges in the Development of High-Energy Lithium-ion Batteries
The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering is hosting a seminar presented by Dr. Jianming Zheng, Staff Scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Jianming Zheng is currently a staff scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. He received his B.S. degree in 2005 and Ph.D. degree in 2011 from Department of Chemistry, Xiamen University, and conducted postdoc research in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (2011-2014) and in the University of Texas at Austin (2014-2015). His research interests include high energy cathode materials and electrolytes for Li-ion batteries and Li metal batteries. He has authored/co-authored over 60 peer-reviewed journal publications and holds 2 US patents. His journal articles have been cited >3000 times with h-index 31.
Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) are the state-of-the-art energy storage systems dominating the consumer electronic devices and electric vehicles (EVs) markets. With the state-of-the-art LIBs deployed in automobile industry, the driving range of EVs is still far behind those of conventional vehicles using internal combustion engines. Therefore, there is an urgent need to overcome current limitation of LIBs in energy and power density, to prolong the driving range and shorten the
recharging time. In this presentation, I will share with our recent results on the development of high-energy-density LIBs, lithium sulfur batteries and lithium metal batteries, focusing on the materials development and the stabilization of electrode interface.
