Prof N Munichandraiah and his group of students at the Indian Institute of Science are carrying out research on lithium batteries to add to the quest of making the ultimate battery

It is difficult to think of a world without batteries. Of particular interest are lithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries because they are ideal for low drain long life applications such as calculators, smoke detectors or computer memory back-up and in high voltage applications such as cameras or flashes.

Prof N Munichandraiah and his group of students in the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at the IISc are carrying out research into various aspects of battery science and technology.

Current research activity focuses on understanding and improving polymer electrolyte-ceramic composites for high energy lithium batteries. Also being investigated are the lithium-ion battery active materials such as the electrochemical characterisation of sub-micron particles of LiMn2O4 (Lithium Manganate).
