 University of MarylandPaul Albertus Academic Transportation My research group has developed methods to assess the thermochemistry of existing and novel battery chemistries using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), which is responsive to the third area mentioned in the teaming partner announcement (safety testing). We have developed specialized methods to place individual and combinations of battery materials, including all of the materials that go into the cell repeat layers (e.g., current collectors, anode and cathode, separator, electrolyte), into a DSC pan and quantify the thermochemistry upon a thermal ramp. This approach requires very little material (mg-scale amounts of each component), but can provide accurate and quantitative information on the onset temperature of self-heating, the total heat release associated with the reactions taking place, and the reaction rates. This method is also well suited to study the interactions among cell components upon heating, e.g., the temperature and rate at which O2 released from cathode materials reacts with other cell components. We have also developed models to project the behavior of large-format cells from reaction thermochemistry measured with DSC.

We are interested in working with organizations developing cells for Areas 1 and 2 who are looking for expertise on evaluating cell safety at the early stages of R&D.

 Oak Ridge National LaboratoryZhijia Du Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Transportation Dr. Du is currently a R&D Staff Scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory ( He joined ORNL in 2015 followed by a 2 year Killam Postdoctoral Fellowship at Dalhousie University. His current research interests are electrolyte development for fast charging of Li ion batteries, novel processing technologies for low cost, high energy density Li ion cells, solid electrolyte design and formulation, operando analysis of ion intercalating compounds, etc.
One of the solutions for enabling extreme fast charging while retaining most of the battery energy can be achieved through the significant enhancement of the Li-ion mass-transport in electrolytes such that enough Li ions are available for intercalation in graphite.
We have developed high performance electrolytes with optimized Li salt, solvents, and additives. The electrolytes have both higher Li ion conductivity and Li ion transference number, compared to state-of-the-art electrolyte. The electrolyte development is ideal for higher Li ion transport and has been identified as a significant step towards realizing cells with XFC capabilities.

These areas include fast charging, crystal structure transformations in electrode materials, silicon electrode development, solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) formation/dissolution mechanisms, electrode stress evolution, electrode and particle coatings, electrolyte additives, and electrochemical modeling. My work enables the development of materials and components that enhance battery performance, life, and safety.

More specifically, I’m a member of the Extreme Fast Charge Cell Evaluation of Lithium-Ion Batteries (XCEL) project funded by DOE-EERE. Our objective is to probe degradation mechanisms in lithium-ion battery cells subjected to fast charging. For this we have done the following:
• Examined electrode polarization at high-rates; developed Li-plating-detection techniques; examined effect of temperature, current pulsing, SOC on Li-plating conditions; established variable-current charging protocols to maximize cell life; developed cell chemistries that enable fast charge; assessed compositional heterogeneities that arise during battery cycling/aging.
In addition, as part of another project, we have
• Investigated lithium concentration gradients in layered oxide and graphite electrodes; examined causes of lateral and transverse heterogeneity for lithium intercalation and deposition; assessed accuracy of electrochemical models used for prediction of lithium transport; developed X-ray diffraction and radiography techniques to study effect of electrode deformation and separator compression.
