This project aims to achieve high energy lithium-oxygen batteries for electric vehicles. Electrification of road transport will minimise consumption of fossil fuels, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and increase energy security. Lithium-oxygen batteries have the highest energy density among all rechargeable battery systems, which is more than ten times over the current lithium-ion batteries. Through exploration of new catalysts, this research intends to significantly improve the performance of lithium-oxygen batteries, including specific capacity, cycle life and round-trip energy efficiency.
The Centre for Clean Energy Technology focuses on the development of efficient devices for energy harvesting, storage, and conversion. Taking a rational approach, we combine first principles calculation and modelling, novel materials architecture design and synthesis, and system integration in our teaching and research practice. We adapt our research activities to the global low-carbon energy context and aim to achieve innovations and breakthroughs in zero-emission energies.
The successful candidate will be awarded $26,682 AUD per annum over 3 years.
