Special Issue "Design, Performance, and Application of Lithium-Ion Batteries"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 January 2024 | Viewed by 1863
With their advantageous high energy density, lithium-based energy storage systems power our daily lives, from smart phones to other consumer electronics. They also enable electrification of transportation systems and provide stationary storage of energy in the electrical grid, which is critical to developing a clean-energy economy. This Special Issue welcomes the submission of original research and review articles discussing the design, synthesis, and application of advanced lithium-ion batteries, to be published in the open access journal Materials. This Issue will cover research areas in novel design and fabrication, simulation, and application of high-energy, long-lifecycle, and fast-charging lithium-ion batteries. Topics of interest include 1) the advanced design of LIBs from a components point of view (electrodes, electrolytes, and additives) to thermal analysis; 2) simulation of LIBs from an electrochemical to thermal point of view to improve their performance and gain insight into their failure/improvement mechanisms; 3) advanced LIBs for high-performance energy storage applications; 4) advanced characterization of battery materials; and 5) application of LIBs from small- to large-scale systems. This Special Issue will additionally evaluate perspectives and novel design ideas concerning LIBs and their characterization with the aim of achieving better performance. Potential topics are as follows:
- Developing electrodes, electrolyte, and separators for LIBs;
- Full-cell design;
- Advanced characterization techniques;
- Capacity fading mechanism and failure analysis;
- Battery management systems (BMS) for LIBs;
- Machine learning applications in LIBs;
- Wearable and flexible LIBs;
- LIBs for electric vehicles;
- modeling of LIBs;
- battery life and safety;
- solid-state LIBs;
- electric vehicles.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
