Microstructural design considerations for Li-ion battery systems

Shen J. Dillon, Ke Sun

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This work reviews microstructural design considerations and challenges associated with producing lithium ion batteries with high energy density, high power density, and low cost. Since these parameters often compete, design strategies tend to be application specific. Lithium ion chemistries are discussed in context of microbatteries, vehicular batteries, and grid scale storage. This article provides an analysis of recent science and engineering developments in lithium ion battery design.
