- Helped pioneer the development of the lithium-ion battery.
- A world leader in the development and understanding of carbonaceous materials for use in lithium-ion batteries.
- Over 630 publications in refereed journals and 65 separate inventions with associated issued patents and patents pending. According Web of Science: H-index = 92 as of Feb. 21, 2016.
- Co-inventor of Li[NixMnxCo1-2x]O2 0 < x < 0.5 (called NMC) class of positive electrode materials now used world wide in Li-ion cells. Many Li-ion cells made today use NMC positive electrode materials.
- Maintain one of the largest and most advanced university laboratories in the world devoted to studies of all aspect of lithium-ion batteries.
- Developed “High Precision Coulometry” and other advanced diagnostics which allow decades long lifetimes of Li-ion cells to be ranked in experiments that last only a few weeks.
- Two spinoff companies, DPM Solutions and Novonix have successfully emerged from the Dahn group at Dalhousie University.
