Lithium batteries 16.1.2017

Quantum mechanics replaces laboratory experiment

To get a better understanding of Li-Ion batteries, junior researchers are using quantum mechanical methods. The multiscale modelling of batteries, which is based on quantum mechanical principles, is an option to develop electrodes and electrolytes using computer-based simulations. The virtual development of batteries is not only accurate and fast, but also offers other benefits, since the costs are lower than those of laboratory experiments. In this way one single experiment can be sufficient to confirm the computer-based results. ... more
