K. M. Abraham
has over thirty years of experience in primary and
secondary lithium battery technologies. He was research
scientist, group leader and vice president of battery research and
development at EIC Laboratories, Inc., Norwood, MA, a pioneering
organization in the development of rechargeable Lithium
batteries. He has advised battery materials producers, battery
manufacturers and startup companies.
Dr. Abraham has
authored or co-authored more than one hundred and fifty articles and book
chapters and sixteen U.S. patents. He has delivered numerous
invited presentations at technical meetings worldwide. He is the
recipient of honors and awards including the Battery Division Research
Award of the Electrochemical Society, 1995; and the NASA Group Achievement Award for
Rechargeable Lithium Battery Team, 1995. He has been elected a Fellow
of the Electrochemical Society, Class of 2000.
Dr. Abraham has
made pioneering scientific contributions in: Primary
and Secondary Lithium Batteries, Lithium-Ion Batteries, Liquid and
Polymer Electrolytes, Electrode Materials, Lithium Polymer Batteries, Rechargeable Na
Batteries, Materials Synthesis and Characterization, and Battery
Engineering. His work in the 1980s on organic liquid
electrolytes and the secondary lithium electrode, and the 1990s on polymer electrolytes has contributed significantly to the
development of rechargeable lithium and lithium-ion polymer batteries.
The work he and his colleagues carried out between 1993 and 1995 on gel polymer
electrolytes supported on micro porous polymer membranes is one of the
first published works on these materials and forms the basis of commercial
Li-ion batteries. He is the inventor of novel Li battery system including
the Lithium-Air battery.
experience and market understanding complement Dr. Abraham's in-depth knowledge
in primary and secondary batteries. He has the experience and knowledge to
communicate equally with the battery scientist, engineer and corporate manager.
