Our present investigations are oriented to discover or develop new cathode/anode electrode materials for lithium ion batteries that have high power capability, high energy density, and long (dis)charge cycling life-time, and also to develop the technologies for commercial lithium ion battery fabrication. The current achievements of our group are that we have found electrode materials that could be applied in high power density battery fabrication. The batteries could be (dis)charged within 6 to 8 minutes. Previous high rate batteries from our cooperation partner have been out ported to Germany, Belgie, and Britain and installed on buses as their power sources. Our continuing work would be to design/discovery new electrode materials for high performance lithium ion battery fabrication and let electric vehicles more welcome in the future.
