Innovation of s-Block Metal Batteries towards Low-Carbon Societies

Research Project Outline

The innovation of a new battery with long operating life and high energy density beyond the present lithium-ion batteries is the key to the stable supply of electrical energy generated from natural sources such as wind power, solar power, and so on. In this project, s-block metals are used as the anode of the new battery. The hetero-interface for the reaction be-tween “ion” and “electron” is the key part of the new battery. In order to control the hetero-interface at the nanometer level, nano-sized electrode materials are investigated. We will es-tablish a hetero-junction between an electrode and an elec-trolyte for fast s-block metal ion transfer.
