Silicon/Graphite Composite Materials As Anode For 3D Printed Lithium-ion Microbatteries
Estrel Convention Center, Berlin, Germany
11:40 - 12:00
The industrial development of ever smaller autonomous electronic devices leads to the demand of suitable electrochemical storage solutions and corresponding production technologies. Additive manufacturing provides a simple routine where battery materials can be printed customizable in μm-scale directly on the substrate. Combined with a high capacity silicon/graphite composite anode we are aiming a long term stable 3D Lithium-ion microbattery.
We'll present our additive manufacturing concept along with recent results of silicon/graphite composite anodes.
Mathias Drews works as a PhD student at Fraunhofer ISE in the cell technology group. His research focuses on additive manufacturing of 3D Lithium-ion microbatteries. After his master degree in physics at the University of Münster he already gained experiences in battery research at the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) and Münster (HI MS).
