Improving cycle life of Tin-based anodes in Li-ion batteries

The next generation metal-based anodes will play a decisive role in the development of not only Lithium-ion batteries, but also the renewable energy sector. This research project is anticipated to improve the cycle life of existing Tin-based anodes and bring them one step closer to commercialization. Our objective is to identify, isolate, and mitigate factors that decrease the cycle life of metal-based anodes, and improve the cycle life by modifying the anode structure. The success of this project will accelerate the technology commercialization of the partner organization.
