The paper "Advanced Material Process' is an excellent example of a term paper on science.   The assembling is done in the factory is done using automated equipment but there are still other small scale manufacturers who use the manual assembly methods. The first step is to construct the electrode assembly whereby the separator is sandwiched between the electrodes (anode and cathode). With respect to the type of casing used, there are two electrode structures can be used. A spiral wound structure is mostly good for cylindrical cells and prismatic cells prefer a stacked structure.

Below is the assembly process for a prismatic and cylindrical cell.   ABSTRACT Lithium batteries are of high demand in applications that include: industrial, automotive category, and portable encompassing. This type of battery should meet requirements like a long life cycle, high rate capabilities, and large reverse capacity that contain advanced materials that provide solutions to these issues. In order to have an improved battery performance, there should be a development of various battery components having a benchmark of improving the materials used in the fabrication of the anode and cathode.

The use of advanced material (conductive composite and nanostructure materials) is to be designed to increase electron transport, diffusion of liquid electrolyte, and ion transport. In this paper, the advanced process used conductive composite materials and several nanostructured materials for application as an electrode for lithium-ion batteries. In the recent world, renewable and clean energy storage has become the most important thing to take note of in the research development and power industry. Fossil fuel is the biggest source of energy. The current urbanization and human mobility have become a threat to this source of energy since it leads to overexploitation of the resources.

Despite the existence of fossil fuel batteries like lithium-ion have been a major source of energy for electronic devices.     However, Lithium batteries cannot satisfy the demand of the public, thus there is a need to improve it.   This battery device is changing dramatically and becoming sophisticated and demanding giving it much room for future development apart from the automotive application (Hyer, 1997, 12).
