Event details

Martin Winter presents a seminar as part of the electrochemistry research group's seminar series.

Battery scientists all over the world are searching for new electrode materials. Optimization efforts are in large majority focused on the increase in capacity, cycle life and rate behavior of these materials. In this presentation irreversible capacities, voltage efficiencies, Coulombic efficiencies and energy efficiencies of various electrode materials will be detailed and compared. As a result, several of the promising electrode materials may be re-considered with regard their relevance for applications where efficiency plays a key role.

Speaker information

Martin Winter, Münster University. As a chemist Martin Winter has been working and researching in the field of electrochemical energy storage and energy conversion for about more than 20 years. His focus is on the development of new materials, components and cell design for lithium-ion batteries and supercapacitors. Martin Winter currently holds a professorship for “Applied Materials Science for Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion” at the Institute of Physical Chemistry (IPC) at Muenster University. The professorship developed from an endowed professorship funded by Volkswagen, Evonik Industries and Rockwood Lithium from 2008 to 2012. Moreover, Martin Winter is currently the scientific head of the MEET Battery Research Centre at Münster University. MEET stands for Münster Electrochemical Energy Technology. It comprises an international team of around 150 scientists who are working on the research and development of innovative electrochemical energy storage devices with high energy density, longer durability and maximum safety.
