Here in LMAPS, we conduct a highly multidisciplinary research with an overarching goal of mapping the chemical, electrochemical, and mechanical properties of materials to their hierarchical structure. Our projects target a broad range of applications primarily focusing on energy storage.
Lithium Sulfur Batteries
We aim to enhance modern Li-S technology by exploring new chemistries and structures in various components of the battery, including the sulfur cathode, the electrolyte, and the Li anode.
Flexible, Wearbale, and Weavable Batteries
We study novel structural hosts in flexible sulfur cathodes and Li anodes as well as new chemistries of electrolytes for wearable and weavable Li-ion and Li-S batteries.
Next Generation Lithium Ion Batteries
We study novel chemistries and hierarchical structures, from crystal to micro-structure, for the next generation Lithium-ion batteries with Lithium Iron Phosphate cathodes.
Biomass for Batteries
We investigate and enhance the chemical, electrochemical and mechanical stability of new bio-mass based-separator materials, as an alternative to the plastic separators, for safer and more environmentally friendly Lithium-based batteries.
