Cathode material with high energy density for all-solid lithium-ion batteries

FDK Corporation and Fujitsu Laboratories today announced that they have jointly developed lithium cobalt pyrophosphate (Li2CoP2O7), which has high energy density, for the cathode material of all-solid lithium-ion batteries (“all-solid-state batteries”). This material enables the development of all-solid-state batteries with higher voltage and higher capacity. In recent years, the specifications required for batteries are becoming increasingly diverse, and, in particular, there is increasing interest in high energy density and safety performance. While there is active progress on improving lithium-ion and other existing batteries, development work is advancing on various types of next-generation batteries with the potential to exceed the performance of existing batteries, and all-solid-state batteries are attracting attention as next-generation batteries with superior safety performance.
