Research in the area of lithium batteries has been quite eventful in the past few years. Some examples of recent achievements in the field are: the substitution of the Li anode with Li(+)-inserting carbonaceous materials, the discovery of polymer electrolytes with liquid-like conductivities at, or below, room temperature and the introduction of new oxide-based cathode materials with enhanced cyclability and energy density. This book aims at providing a factual and updated review of all new concepts which are emerging in research leading to the realization of commercial lithium batteries. An adequate balance of fundamental and applied research work is presented. A detailed description is given of systems ranging from thin-film, integrable batteries for microelectronics to high power, large batteries for industrial applications. Problem areas such as cost, safety and reliability are considered. The book will be of interest to materials scientist, electrochemists, researchers in the battery field in academic and industrial laboratories, solid state chemists and physicists.
