Innovative Cathode Coating Enables Faster Battery Charging, Discharging

Technology available for licensing: Coating increases electrical conductivity of cathode materials

  • Coating does not hinder battery performance
  • Provides two coating processes that yield surface-treated, electro-active materials for a variety of applications, such as in a rechargeable lithium battery in both processes, and primary and secondary lithium battery applications in another process.
