Exponent Scientist to Present at Lithium Mobile Power Conference


October 19, 2010

Dr. Kevin White, Senior Managing Scientist in Exponent's Natick, MA office, will be making a presentation entitled "Thermal Stability of Lithium-Ion Cells as Functions of Chemistry, Design and Energy" on November 5th at the Lithium Mobile Power Conference in Boston.

This presentation compares the thermal stability of commercially available 18650 cells. The results are compared with respect to contributions from cell chemistry, cell design and stored energy. Lithium cobalt dioxide based cells with designs optimized for applications ranging from high rate to high capacity were compared to high power LiFePO4 cells. It was found that the thermal stability is a strong function of stored energy and the degree of graphite lithiation, and is relatively independent of positive electrode chemistry.
