Seminar 11/18/2015 - Gleb Yushin, Georgia Institute of Technology: Nanostructured Composite Electrodes for Energy Storage Devices

Nov 18, 2015  ·  12:00 p.m. 1:00 p.m.  ·  Bowen Hall Auditorium

Title - Nanostructured Composite Electrodes for Energy Storage Devices: Synthesis, Applications and Operando Characterization

Abstract: Energy storage devices, such as batteries and supercapacitors, are critical for the development of zero-emission electrical vehicles, large scale smart electrical grid, energy efficient ships and locomotives and various mobile electronic devices. This talk will focus on the development of nanocomposite electrodes for several classes of devices: (i) ultra-high capacity Li ion and Li metal batteries based on conversion-type cathodes, such as sulfur, lithium sulfide and several types of metal fluorides; (ii) safer all-solid state rechargeable Li batteries; (iii) low-cost, high voltage aqueous Li ion batteries, and (iv) high power asymmetric supercapacitors. The rationale for the selection of active materials, surface coatings and electrolyte compositions as well as challenges associated with different types of materials will be discussed. Various routes to overcome existing challenges will be presented.

Seminar 12/16/2015 - Cory Dean, Columbia University: Engineering New Materials from Old Materials

Dec 16, 2015  ·  12:00 p.m. 1:00 p.m.  ·  Carl A. Fields Center

Abstract: Graphene is probably the best known "exfoliatable" material, in which a  two-dimensional sheet of carbons atoms, just one atom thick, can be peeled from a bulk piece of graphite.  However this represents just one of a larger class of van der Waals materials, in which atomic monolayers can be mechanically isolated from the bulk. The capability to integrate these materials with one another provides an exciting  opportunity in which we can "mix and match" the constituent material properties, by fabrication of multi-layered heterostructures. In this talk I will discuss both fundamental science and technological applications that are being enabled by this new type of materials fabrication.

All seminars are held on Wednesdays from 12:00 noon-1:00 p.m. in the Bowen Hall Auditorium Room 222. A light lunch is provided at 11:30 a.m. in the Bowen Hall Atrium immediately prior to the seminar.
