This project is expected to make a breakthrough in the development of lithium-rich cathode materials for practical lithium ion batteries.

The successful outcomes of this proposal is expect to develop a novel battery system with 20-30 per cent leap of power density compare with conventional lithium ion batteries, which will reap huge savings for automobile industry of Australia.

The successful synthesis of high voltage cathode materials and subsequent applications on high power lithium ion batteries will likely position Australia at the forefront of research fields such as nanotechnology, energy storage, materials engineering, and applied chemistry.

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 three (3) years.
