News and recent publications

  • Si nanopillar electrodes using flexible mold NIL

    E. Mills, J. Cannarella, Q. Zhang, S. Bhadra, C. B. Arnold, and S. Y. Chou, J. Vac. Sci. Technol., B (2014) uses flexible mold NIL to manufacture Si nanostructures for lithium-ion battery electrodes.

  • Modeling separator mechanical properties

    G. Y. Gor, J. Cannarella, J. H. Prévost, and C. B. Arnold, J. Electrochem. Soc. (2014) models the in situ mechanical properties of battery separators under compression, which is important for predicting mechanically coupled battery aging mechanisms.

  • Separator properties under compression

    J. Cannarella, X. Liu, C. Z. Leng, P. D. Sinko, G. Y. Gor, and C. B. Arnold, J. Electrochem. Soc. (2014) measures the in situ mechanical properties of battery separators under compression to better understand mechanically-coupled battery aging mechanisms.

  • On the coupling between stress and voltage in lithium-ion pouch cells

    J. Cannarella, C. Z. Leng, and C. B. Arnold, Proc. SPIE (2014) investigates how materials exhibiting intercalation-induced expansion can be used as a new class of force sensors.

  • Transport and Stability of Laser-Deposited Amorphous Polymer Nanoglobules

    K. B. Shepard, C. B. Arnold, and R. D. PriestleyACS Macro Letters (2014) measures the time of flight and nanoscale thermal properties of stable polymer nanoglobules deposited by MAPLE.
