The company has developed its unique technology around sulfur based cathode materials, highly stable electrolyte systems and anode made of Lithium metal and intercalation materials.
OXIS is based on the Culham Science Centre in Oxfordshire where the original Lithium-Ion batteries were first developed and prototyped. We have well equipped laboratories with state of the art equipment and large dry room facilities.
What we do
OXIS and its research partners are focussing on the development of the world leading Li-S chemistry that can be used in a wide variety of battery applications. Mass production of the cells is handled by licensees, including GP Batteries of Singapore. Several Battery Integration partners are developing batteries for the many applications of the technology.
OXIS are members of RECHARGE, a non profit organization founded to promote the value of rechargeable batteries and represent the interests of all its members in the chain of battery life.
OXIS Patent Portfolio
OXIS has 32 patent families with 100 patents granted and 98 pending. The patents cover electrolyte systems for lithium sulfur cells, methods of lithium sulfur cell construction and also positive and negative electrodes. The patent portfolio is rapidly growing and it reflects the success of our research and development program.
Published patent families include:
- An electrolyte for batteries with a metal lithium electrode
- Electrolyte for lithium-sulfur batteries and lithium sulfur batteries using the same
- Connecting contact leads to lithium based electrodes
- Method of charging lithium sulfur cell
- A Method of cycling a lithium-sulphur cell
Our strategy is to work with world class partners to develop the chemistry into a product that can be used in a range of applications and build cells on our pilot production line to prove its performance. OXIS will then licence this Li-S technology to its manufacturing partners for mass production to allow us to continue to develop the chemistry further and revolutionise the energy market.
