Cathodes are positive electrodes in batteries and are responsible for the high voltage. In this podcast I discuss with Rajesh Mekkat the intricacies of commercial lithium ion cathodes preferred by electric automakers such as NCM, LMO and lithium rich cathodes. Rajesh has been a cathode research engineer for Renault-Nissan in various leadership positions for close to 10 years. Recently, he continues his cathode work in China, at the largest SUV OEM in the country: Great Wall Motor. You can view his LinkedIn profile here. Many safety and energy density features are governed by the cathode.
