USA: April 30 SLAC colloquium on lithium-air batteries

Because lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are now too heavy and expensive to allow mass-market adoption of light-vehicle electrification, battery chemistries “beyond Li-ion” are now actively being explored, according to IBM research consultant Alan Luntz, who will deliver the April 30 SLAC Colloquium, “Beyond Li-ion: The hope, hype and reality of non-aqueous Li-air batteries.”

“Li-air” is short for lithium-air batteries, which have emerged as a favored source of power. Luntz, a consulting professor of photon science at SLAC, will discuss how work with Li-air batteries has exploded over the last two years – from a backwater academic discipline to a major research focus – with more than 50 different companies, university groups and Department of Energy laboratories participating.
