The award builds on the successful NSF-STTR Phase I project, titled “Using Nanoparticle Oxide Coatings to Extend Cycle Life of Cathode Materials in Lithium-Ion Batteries”. During the Phase I research, this inexpensive and easy-to-apply coating was shown to help increase the cycle life of certain rechargeable lithium ion batteries by several times. This Phase II grant is designed to allow the full commercialization of the product. The research and technology is being developed in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin in Madison
The work is being conducted jointly at SolRayo’s facility in Madison at the lab of Professor Marc Anderson at the University of Wisconsin. The project officially commenced on April 1, 2012 and is scheduled to conclude on March 31, 2014.
