Presentation Title: Electrode Processing and Manufacturing for Lithium-Ion Batteries

Abstract: The demand for lithium-ion batteries is ever-increasing with their applications to electrical vehicles and grid storage. Electrode processing and manufacturing plays an essential role in manufacturing cost and performance of lithium-ion batteries. This presentation will share several processes in fabricating electrodes and highlight their impact on energy consumption, manufacturing cost, electrode properties, and electrochemical performance.

Biography: Dr. Jianlin Li is the Energy Storage and Conversion department manager in the Applied Materials division. Jianlin's research area includes materials synthesis, processing and characterization, electrode engineering, cell manufacturing and prototyping for energy storage and conversion.

He received bachelor's degrees in Materials Chemistry and Electronic Information Engineering and a master's degree in Materials Science from the University of Science and Technology of China.
