Paper Abstract

Development of new materials hold the key to the fundamental progress in energy storage systems such as Li-ion battery, which is widely used in modern technologies because of their high energy density and extended cycle life. Among these materials, porous carbon is of particular interest because it provides high lithiation and excellent cycling capability by shortening the transport length for Li+ ions with large electrode/electrolyte interface. It has also been demonstrated that transition metal oxide nanoparticle can enhance surface electrochemical reactivity and increase the capacity retention capability for higher number of cycles. Here we investigate porous carbon/ceria (CeO2) nanoparticles composites as an anode material. The high redox potential of ceria is expected to provide a higher potential window as well as increase the specific capacity and energy density of the system. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) is used for material characterization, while battery analyzer is used for measuring the electrochemical performance of the battery.
