Webinar

8th Workshop "Lithium-Sulfur Batteries"

June 18–19, 2020, Webinar

Lithium-sulfur batteries are the most promising choice for future energy storage systems. Lithium metal anodes are decisive components as they determine cycling stability and specific energy, also in solid state batteries. Topical sessions of this year’s workshop will address the development of lithium metal anodes and all-solid-state cell concepts. Novel materials such as nanostructured carbon/sulfur composite cathodes, solid electrolytes and alloy-based anodes are crucial to significantly enhance the cell performance.


Our general topics:

  • Electrode materials
  • Lithium metal anodes
  • All-solid-state cell concepts
  • Separators and electrolytes
  • Mechanisms
  • Cell design and manufacturing
  • Applications for Li-S-Batteries
