Optimizing Battery Materials
Shorter charging times, higher energy and power densities, and more efficient use of materials are just some of the key technological challenges. Quantum chemical simulations enable considerable efficiency improvements in battery R&D, e.g. by identifying optimal electrode materials or increasing ion mobility within the electrode.
The analysis of structural and volume changes as well as electronic properties of electrode materials provides information about the stability and potential performance of an electrode. Be it at changing ambient temperatures or during charge-discharge cycles: the whole screening process can be fully automated with the help of the Quantistry Lab.
In order to improve both the charge rate and performance of an electrode material, an in-depth understanding of diffusion processes at electrode interfaces and within the electrode material is essential. Our solution helps to easily identify promising material candidates with optimal diffusion paths.
Defects and Dopings
Since structural defects and dopings can have a large impact on the properties of battery components, their identification and analysis is exceptionally relevant. Quantistry helps you to evaluate the potential effects on the performance of an electrode material in a highly efficient way.

The consistency of the open circuit voltage (OCV) as the state of charge decreases is given particular attention in the context of battery development. It is a key indicator of whether a battery can deliver the same voltage regardless of whether it is 80, 50 or 30 percent charged, thus ensuring consistent vehicle performance.
Optimized Intercalation Paths
In order to enable short charging cycles, electrode materials and additives are to be identified which favor the intercalation of lithium ions in the electrode surface and at the same time prevent plating (i.e. the accumulation of lithium atoms on the electrode surface). For this purpose, it is necessary to understand exactly how lithium ions diffuse into the cathode or the anode and how the energetically preferred intercalation can occur.
