Abstract

Lionano Inc. proposes to develop a novel cathode material that will improve lithium ion batteries (LIBs) in terms of both gravimetric and volumetric energy density, length of charge, charging rate, cost and safety. The new cathode material also can be used as a "drop-in replacement" for current LIB systems, and thus new batteries will not need to be designed and manufactured in order to accommodate the material. This battery technology opens up a new era for military applications such as US Army ARDEC munitions and projectiles fired from a gun.
