Electrical storage: the best for batteries

From batteries in smartphones to stationary storage units that store electricity from a company's solar power system: electrical energy storage units can be used in a variety of ways. With our research, we contribute to making batteries for mobile and stationary use safer and cheaper.

We are interested in different types of batteries, for example lithium-ion, redox flow, lithium metal and solid-state batteries. Part of our research is concerned with developing the optimal material composition for anodes and cathodes and other components of different battery types. In doing so, we also consider and improve production technologies and have developed our own process for hand-manufacturing lithium-ion cells for this purpose. To this end, we are increasingly using simulation models.
