About this book

Lithium Batteries: Science and Technology is an up-to-date and comprehensive compendium on advanced power sources and energy related topics. Each chapter is a detailed and thorough treatment of its subject. This volume includes several tutorials and contributes to an understanding of the many fields that impact the development of lithium batteries. Recent advances on various components are included and numerous examples of innovation are presented. Extensive references are given at the end of each chapter. All contributors are internationally recognized experts in their respective specialty.

The fundamental knowledge necessary for designing new battery materials with desired physical and chemical properties including structural, electronic and reactivity are discussed. The molecular engineering of battery materials is treated by the most advanced theoretical and experimental methods. Readers can find a wealth of energy related topics, such as energy storage, use of hybrid systems and battery-based transportation.

This book is designed primarily as a reference book covering all aspects of physics, chemistry and the materials science of Li batteries. The tutorial development of the chapters should also encourage use of this book for advanced level courses. Lithium Batteries: Science & Technology is an invaluable reference book for researchers, battery developers and manufacturers, and industrial managers working in the field of Li batteries.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Among the various successful developments in electrochemical energy technology … there is hardly any match for lithium batteries. … the editor’s expertise both as actual researcher in the area and as consultant provide a solid foundation. … this book has a very logical and evident structure providing easy access for anybody interested in this area of research and technology. … the book is carefully prepared." (Rudolf Holze, Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, Vol. 9 (11), 2005)
