Lecture Eredoctor Prof. dr. Jean-Marie TARASCON: New materials for better batteries

College de France

24 mei 2016 - Auditorium EDM

Honorary Doctorate of the Faculty of Sciences
Promotor: prof. dr. Marlies Van Bael
Copromotor: prof. dr. An Hardy

Research’s progresses in rechargeable batteries are driven by ever increasing demands for portable electronic devices as well as for powering electric vehicles and providing load-leveling for mass storage of renewable energy. This will ever increase over years to come with new business players challenging today’s traditions. Rechargeable lithium ion batteries, because of their high energy density, have conquered most of today’s portable electronics and are the systems of choice for the aforementioned applications. Therefore, for this to happen, materials with higher energy densities while being sustainable, scalable, reliable and low cost must be developed. The challenges for chemists are enormous and this calls for new materials, new concepts as well as new chemistries. These different aspects will be addressed through his presentation.
