Description

A one-stop resource for both researchers and development engineers, this comprehensive handbook serves as a daily reference, replacing heaps of individual papers.
This second edition features twenty percent more content with new chapters on battery characterization, process technology, failure mechanisms and method development, plus updated information on classic batteries as well as entirely new results on advanced approaches.
The authors, from such leading institutions as the US National Labs and from companies such as Panasonic and Sanyo, present a balanced view on battery research and large-scale applications. They follow a distinctly materials-oriented route through the entire field of battery research, thus allowing readers to quickly find the information on the particular materials system relevant to their research.

Reviews

“On the whole, this handbook is certainly suitable not only for Ph.D. students freshly entering the field, but moreover for scientists and engineers who already have some experience with battery research, development, and applications.”  (Energy Technology, 1 August 2013)

“Nevertheless the book is a must for any university and research library where research in electrochemical energy conversion and storage is in the focus of research and development.”  (Journal Solid State Electrochem, 1 May 2013)
