Our Work

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.

Hierarchical Structure-to-Property Relationships in Sulfur Cathodes

With a novel approach rooted in the materials science, we aim to ultimately resolve the challenges in Li-S batteries by reaching a more clear understanding of the effect of sulfur electrode atomic-scale structure on its properties.

In collaboration with:

Materials Engineering for the Next Generation of Separators in Secondary Lithium Metal-based Batteries

In this project, we investigate and enhance the chemical, electrochemical and mechanical stability of new separator materials, as an alternative for the PPP separators, for Lithium metal-based batteries.
