Group Leader Battery Systems for Special Applications Fraunhofer Institute for Silicon Technology
Dr. Andreas Würsig is head of the group "Battery Systems for Special Applications" at the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicon Technology (ISIT) in Itzehoe, Germany. He has more than 15 years of experience in the development of advanced lithium batteries including materials, manufacturing processes and testing. Dr. Würsig started his career with Fraunhofer in 2006 developing lithium-polymer batteries and adapting them to a broad spectrum of applications ranging from medical to automotive. His current research focuses on new LTO anode materials for high power applications, post-lithium-ion technology and water-based binder systems. Dr. Würsig has a diploma in chemistry from the Technische Universität in Freiberg, Germany and obtained his Ph.D. from the ETH Zürich, Switzerland for his work on „Differential electrochemical mass spectrometry and X-ray diffraction for characterization of electrodes for lithium-ion batteries“. Prior to his position with Fraunhofer Dr. Würsig performed a one-year postdoctoral research at the University of Basel. He holds 2 patents and has more than 20 published works.
