The Current Focus Area is to Increase Specific Capacity of Battery

There are 3 main goals that influence direction research and development for anode and cathode for lithium-ion batteries, which are to increase longevity of the battery both in terms of capacity and calendar life, to widen safe operating windows and to reduce cost per kWh of battery. These 3 main goals or achievement lead or push researchers to concentrate their research on the specific capacity of battery in order to increase longevity of battery, manipulate nanomaterials to increase every aspect of the electrode, increase cycling stability of electrode and to reduce volumetric changes on the electrode.
