Webinar: Li-Ion Batteries and Beyond: Driving Next-Generation Energy Storage with MedeA


Upcoming Webinar and Training Session

At a time when lithium is becoming the 'new oil', the demand for next-generation battery materials, materials optimization, and materials processing understanding, are at an all time high. It is important to establish a broad range of battery materials, inclusive of lithium and beyond. This webinar will discuss some of the ways MedeA can be used to explore next-generation battery materials, and more specifically how MedeA can be used to accelerate the search for good multivalent ion battery materials.

  • Automated convergence testing

  • Intercalation site identification in the Chevrel phase Mo6S8

  • Electronic analysis of multivalent ion battery materials

  • Voltage comparison of multivalent ion batteries

  • Stable phase prediction as Li is increased in LixNiO2

  • Voltage prediction for LixNiO2
