A New Paradigm for Battery Research and Development

A New Paradigm for Battery Research and Development

The Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR) introduces a new paradigm for battery research: integrating discovery science, battery design, research prototyping and manufacturing collaboration in a single highly interactive organization. This new paradigm by George Crabtree will accelerate the pace of discovery and innovation and reduce the time from conceptualization to commercialization.

The energy-storage frontier: Lithium-ion batteries and beyond

The energy-storage frontier: Lithium-ion batteries and beyond

In this article, George Crabtree, Elizabeth Kocs, and Lynn Trahey illustrate the history of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, which have enabled unprecedented personalization of our lifestyles through portable information and communication technology. These remarkable batteries enable the widespread use of laptop and tablet computers, access to entertainment on portable devices such as hand-held music players and video game consoles, and enhanced communication and networking on personal devices such as cellular telephones and watches.In this article, we illustrate this concept with the history of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, which have enabled unprecedented personalization of our lifestyles through portable information and communication technology.
