In order to meet the need of energy development for vehicle electrification, grid scale application of the renewable and more advanced portable electronic devices, lithium sulfur battery has been regarded as the most promising candidate for the high energy storage to substitute the conventional lithium ion battery in our current market due to its high theoretical capacity and energy density, low cost and environmental friendliness. However, the commercialization of lithium sulfur battery has been mainly hindered by the problem of shuttle effect. Therefore, a novel cathode material could be designed to solve the problem we are facing. In this project, students will need to analyze the existed battery material design and develop your own cathode material for lithium sulfur battery. This project could provide you a very interesting research experience; all the students are encouraged and welcomed to join.
