Our paper on solution processed sulfide electrolyte coatings is published and featured on the inside cover of the journal, Advanced Materials Interface! Read more here.
Congratulations to Chris, Hongyao, and Haodong on publishing the nanoporous metal work in ACS Nano! Read more: A Scalable Synthesis Pathway to Nanoporous Metal Structures
This fall, the group welcomes Materials Science PhD student Victoria Petrova and MS student Liz Lee.
Haodong’s paper on using lithium methyl carbonate to suppress lithium dendrites and enable stable cycling has been published. Read more here: http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsami.7b08198
In order to better reflect our purpose of using creative chemistry and materials science to address difficult challenges in energy and beyond, MESC will be renamed Electrochemical Materials Science Laboratory.
Our laboratory has an opening for a chemistry postdoctoral fellow to start immediately. The position is best suited for a chemist with a strong synthesis background (organic and inorganic). Strong interest in energy conversion and storage is desired. Previous exposure to electrochemistry is preferred. The position is for one year…
We gave our group’s website a face lift! Be on the look out for new updates!
MESC has recently been selected to participate in the DOE ARPA-E IONICS program. The program focuses on developing innovative ion conductors for energy applications. MESC will lead a team to develop a “self forming solid state battery”. In another project, MESC will partner with CU Boulder and ESS to develop…
MESC welcomes three new PhD students to the group! Matthew Gonzalez from Johns Hopkins University, Fangyu Zhang from Cornell and Nick Patterson from UT Austin. MESC welcomes our new postdoc, Dr. Haodong Liu. Dr. Liu obtained his PhD in Nanoengineering from UC San Diego.
MESC is joining the new Battery500 consortium led by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) aiming to almost triple the energy packed in electric car batteries and make them smaller, lighter and less expensive, which would allow manufacturers to make more affordable electric vehicles that can travel two to three times…
