Li-ion batteries

Design and discovery of electrode materials

The design and discovery of electrode and electrolyte materials for Li-ion batteries have been a core research area of Prof. Tarascon for more than 20 years. His contribution to the field includes the design of LP30 electrolyte for LIBs, conversion electrodes, the discovery of cationic- anionic redox-active electrode materials, etc.

We currently focus on studying meta-stable materials by developing exotic synthesis methodologies and studying its properties for various applications, including Li-ion batteries.
