Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lithium batteries have attracted considerable attention and been widely used in portable electronics, electric vehicles, medical devices, and grid energy storage. During electrochemical processes, the inside redox reaction between cathodes and anodes realizes energy conversion between chemical energy and electricity energy. Compared with lead-acid batteries, nickel-based batteries, flow batteries, etc., lithium batteries are lighter, smaller, and more powerful. In addition, high efficiency, low memory effect, and low self-discharge rate are also advantages making it a promising option for wider future use. To date, lithium batteries have been extensively studied are familiar to the experts in this area. However, just because something is the status quo does not mean it is the right choice, and more research needs to be carried out to achieve a better performance and safer lithium batteries, especially driven by the need for higher energy density conditions.

This Special Issue aims to present and disseminate the most recent advanced technologies for the development of high-performance lithium batteries.

Topics of interest for publication include but are not limited to:

  • Research on basic science of key electrode materials for lithium batteries, including layered cathode materials, spinel cathode materials, polyanion cathode materials, graphite anodes, silicon anodes, Li-metal anodes, etc.;
  • Development of high-performance lithium battery electrolyte, including organic electrolytes, aqueous electrolytes, solid-state electrolytes, gel–polymer electrolytes, and ionic liquid;
  • Recovery and reuse of materials related to lithium batteries;
  • Lithium-battery-related theoretical simulation work;
  • Battery assembly and safety analysis.

The early fault detection and reliable operation of lithium-ion batteries are two of the main challenges the technology faces. Here, we report a new methodology for early failure detection in lithium-ion batteries. This new methodology is based on wavelet spectral analysis to detect overcharge failure in batteries that is performed for voltage data obtained in cycling tests, subjected to a standard charge/discharge protocol. The main frequencies of the voltage temporal signal, the harmonic components in the regular cycling test, and a low frequency pattern were identified. For the first time, battery failure can be anticipated by wavelet spectral analysis. These results could be the key to the new early detection of battery failures in order to reduce out-of-control explosions and fire risks. Full article
