Electrolyte Design for High Energy Batteries

Abstract
The energy density, safety, and cycle life of batteries are critical for electric vehicles (EV),electric aviation, and renewable energy storage. However, current Li-ion batteries still cannot simultaneously meet all the requirements for these applications. We developed non-flammable fluorinated organic electrolytes, aqueous electrolytes, and solid-state electrolytes to enhance the energy density, safety, and cycle life of the rechargeable batteries. The electrolyte design principle for high-capacity electrodes in Li, Zn, and Mg batteries will be discussed.

Biography
Professor Lane W. Martin is Chancellor’s Professor and Chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley and a Faculty Senior Scientist in the Materials Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Lane’s contributions to physical and materials science are broad reaching, but his focus is on advancing the synthesis, characterization, and utilization of emergent function (be that electronic, ferroic, multiferroic, etc.) in complex oxides. Lane applies innovative synthesis of highly controlled, epitaxial thin-film materials with special attention to accessing new states of matter, uses growth and epitaxy to access new insights about foundational materials physics, and pushes the edge of material response via strain, defect, and interfacial engineering. Lane embraces cross-disciplinary, collaborative research and leverages it to drive innovation.
