Our paper on using Functionally Graded Cathodes to improve the cycle life of K-O2 battery was published as an Early View article in the journal Batteries and Supercaps.
A Ph.D. candidate in the group, Parker Evans, presented his work in the 3 minute thesis competition during 2019 IMR Materials Week.
His presentation won him the first place in this event!!!
Parker Evans is a Translational Plant Sciences program and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering student and dissertation focuses on developing a device called ‘chemical actuator’.
Travis Hery successfully defended his doctoral thesis examination titled “Smart Membrane Separators for Enhanced Performance of Lithium-Ion Batteries” today.
