Lithium insertion/extraction kinetics in LiFePO4

The electric vehicle appears to be the new frontiers in lithium batteries. Distinctly different from mass produced microelectronics, it requires higher energy density as well as improved power performance requirements. Especially, charge/discharge rates during startup from standstill, deceleration, emergency charging, etc. provide unique challenges. To this end, new chemistries and new material with morphologies like …
