Andreas Würsig

Andreas Würsig is currently head of the “Research Center for Applied Battery Technology” at the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicon Technology (ISIT). For more than 20 years, he has been working on the development of advanced battery technologies, especially in the areas of cell manufacturing, system integration and characterization. Since 2006, he has been working at the ISIT on the development of custom lithium battery cells and their adaptation to a wide range of applications. With Leclanche, Liacon and Customcells, three companies were founded with production technologies developed at ISIT.

Mr. Würsig’s current research focuses on new high-power batteries, solvent-free manufacturing processes, new separator concepts, and new cell monitoring technologies. He holds two patents and has published more than 20 papers.

After completing his chemistry studies, he received his Ph.D. in 2005 from the PSI of ETH Zurich with a thesis on the characterization of electrodes for lithium-ion batteries.
