Rechargeable Battery Materials Group

High-performance rechargeable batteries have been supporting an advanced information society as power sources in portable electronics such as mobile phones, and they are expected to contribute to realizing an environment-friendly society. Rechargeable Battery Materials Group aims for the realization of solid-state batteries with high reliability and lithium–air batteries with ultimate capacities.

Specialized Research Field

High performance of batteries will come not only from high-performance battery materials but also from high-performance interface, which will not be realized without understanding of the interfacial phenomena. Solid-state batteries are highly-reliable, while they need higher power densities. Lithium-air batteries have high theoretical energy densities; however, they are suffering from poor cycling performance. Our research group is addressing these issues through the fundamental studies on the interfacial phenomena.
